Cryotherapy Treatment in Pleasanton
Whole-body cryotherapy treatment utilizes extremely cold, dry air to provide pain relief and promote healing.
Exposing the body to cold temperatures initiates the body’s anti-inflammatory and immune responses. Endorphins are released to allow you to experience an overall sense of well-being, in addition to pain relief.
Cryotherapy is ideal for athletes who want to recover faster from injuries or do their best to prevent them altogether. It’s also an ideal treatment for acute joint pain or muscle pain exacerbated by inflammation.
How Does Cryotherapy Work?
Treatments can be as short as a minute and a half or as long as three minutes. Because the temperature is so cold, it doesn’t take very long for your body to respond to it.
You will be clothed during your session. Shorts, underwear, gloves, and socks are all permitted, but you will need to remove all jewelry before the session. Make sure that your body is completely dry before entering the chamber to prevent frostbite.
Immediately following the session, many patients have expressed to us that they felt obvious positive changes. Others state that while they still left feeling good, the benefits were increasingly noticeable in the hours and days following treatment.

Exposure to cold temperatures triggers healing reactions such as:

Together, these reactions have brought relief to nearly anyone experiencing pain, including:

- Post-workout soreness
- Those with back pain caused by muscle strain, bulging discs, or poor posture
- Fibromyalgia patients

Due to the pain-relieving and regenerative results of cryotherapy, your Pleasanton chiropractor will highly recommend this as a recovery treatment for athletes and dedicated fans of exercise.
Cryotherapy can feel like a life-saver after a tough game or workout. Some athletes even schedule an appointment directly after a workout so they can safely and comfortably prepare for another workout session later in the day.
A cryotherapy session can:
- Provide relief from delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)
- Increase blood circulation
- Increase metabolism
- Accelerate detoxification
- Speed cellular repair of damaged tissues
