What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy uses extremely cold temperatures to treat tumors. Cryotherapy treats Liver cancer, kidney cancer, prostate cancer, and bone cancer. It also treats small tumors in the retina, early-stage skin cancers, precancerous skin growths, and precancerous cervical growths. Cryotherapy can reduce swelling and it is effective when you are managing pain with swelling, especially around a joint or tendon. This is the simplest, time-tested remedy for managing pain and swelling.
Cryotherapy is a technique where the body is exposed to extremely cold temperatures for several minutes. This can be delivered to just one area, or it can be delivered to the whole-body. Localized cryotherapy can be given in a number of ways, including through ice packs, ice massage, coolant sprays, ice baths.
In whole-body cryotherapy, the individual will stand in an enclosed chamber that surrounds their body but has an opening for their head at the top. The enclosed chamber will drop to the temperature between negative 200–300°F. They will remain in the enclosed chamber for two and four minutes.

How does Cryotherapy work?
Cryotherapy involves freezing the cancer cells and blocking their blood supply. Tiny needles are placed right into the tumor. Argon gases are passed through the needles and exchanged with helium gases. This causes a freezing and warming cycle. The frozen, dead tissue then melts away.

What are the Complications of Cryotherapy?
The most common side effects of any type of cryotherapy are numbness, tingling, redness, and irritation of the skin. These side effects are almost always temporary.
You should never use cryotherapy for longer than is recommended for the method of therapy you’re using. For whole body cryotherapy, this would be more than four minutes. If you’re using an ice pack or ice bath at home, you should never apply ice to the area for more than 20 minutes. Wrap ice packs in a towel so you don’t damage your skin.
