Do you have osteoarthritis?
There is a good chance that you do, especially if you are over 65. Osteoarthritis is what many people think of as age-related joint pain. While it can occur in younger people, it usually occurs in older people. That is because it is caused by the breakdown of cartilage in joints over time. Once the cartilage breaks down, it can cause other problems like bone spurs or chipped and broken bone and cartilage present in the joint.
Osteoarthritis is a progressive disease
It begins with cartilage breakdown but can progress all the way to complete loss of cartilage, which results in bone-on-bone movement. That can be painful and debilitating.
Inflammation plays a role in osteoarthritis
Initial joint damage leads to inflammation. The inflammation then leads to great joint damage. The more joint damage present, the greater the inflammation is likely to be. Therefore, putting an end to the inflammation is one way to help slow the progression of osteoarthritis.
Western medicine has struggled to find an effective and safe way to deal with inflammation. Cryotherapy might be the solution. Cryotherapy is very effective at treating inflammation. It can be used systemically to treat inflammation in the whole body or localized to treat inflammation in a particular joint. Doctors in Europe have been successfully using cryotherapy to reduce inflammation for over 40 years.
At Chill Cryotherapy, we have developed a treatment protocol designed to ease the symptoms of osteoarthritis and slow its progression. By reducing inflammation, we can reduce further joint damage. You also get the analgesic effects of the treatment, which can give non-pharmaceutical pain relief.
One of the best things about cryotherapy is that it can be used alone or in combination with other therapies. It will not interfere with the effectiveness of other common treatments for osteoarthritis including NSAIDs, narcotics, dietary supplements, hydrotherapy, physical therapy, acupuncture, stretching, or even surgery. This means you do not have to replace your current treatments to try cryotherapy. Instead, you can supplement your current treatment.
Contact us today to set up your osteoarthritis sessions. In addition to normal sessions, we may have study participation slots available. We want to show the world how effective this treatment can be. To do that, we have to show them the research. If you qualify for one of our ongoing studies, you may be able to get a significant discount on your cryotherapy treatments.
