WHAT IS CRYOTHERAPY?
TH7 BodyLabs whole body cryotherapy sessions see the body exposed to cold temperatures of -110℃. This exposure to the cold will improve muscle recovery times, focus, and mental clarity and increase immune function and metabolism. Cryotherapy is administered in tanks where cold air passes over the body.
IS CRYOTHERAPY TREATMENT EFFECTIVE FOR PLANTAR FASCIITIS?
Cryotherapy is an effective plantar fasciitis treatment because it can help reduce inflammation and reduce foot and heel pain and make it easier for the patient to walk after sleep or rest.
HOW WILL CRYOTHERAPY HELP PLANTAR FASCIITIS?
Cryotherapy can help to reduce the inflammation of the plantar fascia, and it will also help increase blood flow.
IMPROVED BLOOD FLOW
Whole-body cryotherapy promotes vasoconstriction of the body’s blood vessels from the extremities. This is a natural reaction to keep the core warm. On leaving the cryotherapy chamber, the vasodilation that takes place widens the blood vessels. The flow of blood back to the extremities improves muscle recovery.
IMPROVED SLEEP QUALITY
This therapy will also improve sleep quality, which helps the plantar fascia to recover. Prolactin is a hormone that is released during sleep that regulates inflammation. Getting the required rest and sleep will help reduce inflammation and plantar fascial pain.
Plantar fasciitis is caused by an inflamed plantar fascia, and continued treatments help to reduce the concentration of damage markers in the muscle cell, relieving pain and reducing inflammation.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU DO CRYOTHERAPY FOR PLANTAR FASCIITIS?
Whole-body cryotherapy sessions will be most effective after regular treatments. Regular sessions will help to reduce the inflammation and gradually reduce the pain.
Everyone will be different, and you should gauge how quickly your body is responding to the treatment. You can do this as often as twice a day and up to five sessions per week.
Even after recovering from plantar fasciitis, the body will still benefit from cryotherapy, and it can be used for general well-being.
CRYOTHERAPY FOR PLANTAR FASCIITIS: WHAT DOES THE RESEARCH SAY?
Studies into the application of cold to reduce the symptoms of plantar fasciitis have shown that there are benefits.
This was not a specific study into the benefits of cryotherapy, but the application of an ice pack carried out on three groups of ten for 20 minutes at a time.
It showed that the most effective application was before bedtime rather than in the morning. However, applying cold to the foot in the morning also showed signs of improvement.

IS WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE?

WHO CAN SUFFER FROM SEVERE PAIN IN THE PLANTAR FASCIA?
Anyone can suffer from severe or mild foot pain caused by the inflammation of the plantar fascia, but typically you will find people aged from 40 to 60 are more likely to suffer from this.
Many people that are overweight will make an effort to try and get fitter by exercising, walking, and running. Exercising on hard surfaces, having a tight calf before exercises, and wearing the wrong shoes can all play a part in the occurrence of inflammatory conditions.
Getting the proper footwear that will support your heels and arch can help those who are getting back into regular activity.
DOES WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY TREAT ANY OTHER CONDITIONS?
There are a number of conditions that cryotherapy can help improve beyond the inflammation of the plantar fascia. These include;
- Multiple Sclerosis
Chronic plantar fasciitis can be debilitating and impact how you train and your quality of life. Physical therapy, including stretches and rest, will help, but those looking for significant pain relief will benefit from our services.
