Cold chamber applications, a therapeutic technique in which extreme cold is applied to the body, offers several notable benefits that have attracted considerable attention. Are you familiar with the concept of cold chamber applications and have you ever thought about their importance? Could this cold therapy offer potential benefits for individuals?
What are cold chamber applications?
The term “cold chamber applications” is derived from the Greek words “kryos” and “therapeia”, meaning “cold” and “therapy” respectively. For a short period of one to three minutes, individuals are exposed to extremely low temperatures, as low as -150°C. While it may not suit one’s preferences, athletes such as Steph Curry and Usain Bolt have advocated cold chamber applications as a means of improving their athletic abilities.
What is the set protocol or set of steps
During cold chamber applications, the human body is temporarily exposed to extremely low temperatures. The supply of cold can be directed either to a specific area or to the entire body. In the proposed method, the rapid and intense action of cold is used as a natural therapeutic approach to lower the temperature of the skin. The skin serves as a medium for transmitting sensory information to the brain, activating the immunological and basic physiological systems. This process leads to the release of endorphins, which have analgesic properties and thus inhibit the sensation of pain. Immersion in extremely cold air can have numerous health benefits.
The main advantages of cold chamber applications are explained below.
- Analgesic properties
The human body is capable of withstanding physical stress under certain circumstances. Physical activities such as playing sports, participating in marathons, holding long postures, and performing routine daily activities can cause physical discomfort. Cold chamber applications have been shown to potentially relieve chronic or degenerative pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis and chronic pain syndrome.
- Weight loss
It has been noted that cold chamber applications can potentially contribute to weight loss. Exposure to cold temperatures triggers an enhanced physiological response that stimulates the organism to increase metabolic activity. Each cold chamber application session has the potential to promote the burning of 500 to 800 calories, reduce fat deposits and increase energy levels and endurance, enabling individuals to effectively pursue their daily activities.
- The effect of mood enhancers on emotional well-being.
The extremely low temperatures cause the release of adrenaline, noradrenaline and endorphins, while at the same time decreasing cortisol levels, which overall improves mood. The physiological hormone responses described above may potentially benefit individuals suffering from anxiety or depression.
- Strategies to prevent dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
Chronic inflammation can cause or exacerbate the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Anti-inflammatory effects have been observed in cold chamber applications, possibly reducing the risk of developing certain diseases. One study has shown that cold chamber applications have the potential to alleviate inflammation and oxidative stress, both of which have been linked to the development of dementia and other age-related degenerative diseases.
- Comprehensive physical well-being
Forma is committed to a comprehensive approach to promoting wellness and facilitating the recovery process. Cold chamber applications have been shown to relieve migraine symptoms, improve sleep quality, strengthen the immune system and enhance the body’s healing abilities. Whether you’re looking to recover from physical exertion or relieve discomfort, cold chamber applications can be a useful way to achieve your wellness goals.
