Cryotherapy as the Answer to the Opioid Crisis

President Donald Trump declared a nationwide public health emergency to combat the opioid crisis.

“This opioid crisis is a national health emergency,” he said. “Nobody has seen anything like what is going on now.”

He added: “As Americans, we cannot allow this to continue. It is time to liberate our communities from this scourge of drug addiction. Never been this way. We can be the generation that ends the opioid epidemic. We can do it.”

So what are opioids? They are drugs that relieve pain by acting on the nervous system. Continued use can lead to physical dependence or addiction. Opioid pain relievers are generally safe when taken for a short time and as prescribed by a doctor, but because they produce euphoria in addition to pain relief, they can be misused. Since opioids stimulate the parts of the brain that are connected to reward, some users experience a “high” feeling when they take even legitimately prescribed doses of these medications. It is this feeling of euphoria that causes addiction as users attempt to produce the pleasant feeling as often as possible. This type of addiction leads to abuse of opioid medications, including not only overdose but also improper administration, such as grinding painkiller tablets and snorting them rather than swallowing them whole as they are prescribed for medical use.

Is There an All-natural Solution? What About Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy as an alternative to opioids, is a 100% natural pain reduction remedy. It is a great way to get a natural rush and relieve pain without relying on medication.

This treatment is chemical-free and all natural. Cryotherapy treatment uses only cold nitrogen gas. When you stand in the cryotherapy chamber, this gas surrounds your body for three minutes. After that, you can exit the chamber with less pain or no pain at all. The cold slows down nerve pain signals, which is responsible for this pain relief. Cryotherapy makes it possible for you to be pain-free and live life naturally.

How Does Cryotherapy Reduce Pain?

First, the nerve signal transmission is slowed reducing the amount of nerve signals getting through to the brain.

Second, norepinephrine levels increase after cold immersion. This reduces pain sensitivity as a protective mechanism in times of life-or-death situations.

Lastly, cryotherapy can reduce pain intensity and frequency by reducing inflammation.
