Ultra-cold therapy of the whole body is indicated for joint disorders, rheumatic spine disorders, asthma and post-traumatic joint and muscle pains. Ultra-cold therapy has a strong anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effect. Ultra-cold therapy is also used by athletes to improve strength and speed and general wellbeing.
Ultra-cold therapy is a treatment method which involves people staying in a room cooled to between –100 and –140°C, wearing only swimwear (but with their hands, feet, nose and ears covered).
The pain subsides immediately after ultra-cold therapy for one to five hours. A general sense of wellbeing also persists for about as long.
It is recommended that ultra-cold therapy be administered in the form of several shorter courses with smaller intervals or as a single longer course.
Ultra-cold therapy has no age limitations or serious contraindications, except for decompensated elevated blood pressure.
We ask patients coming to ultra-cold therapy procedures to bring gloves, closed-in shoes and a headband or hat with them to protect their ears because fingers, toes, the nose and ears are unable to tolerate the cold in the chamber.
