Reduced Migraine Intensity
Studies show that localized cryotherapy in the neck area can reduce the intensity of migraines. The treatment helps cool blood going into the brain and numbs nerves in the neck area. This approach reduces pain intensity, but research is yet to show whether it could eliminate it. Anecdotal evidence from cryotherapy practitioners says yes.
Decreased Muscle Pain and Faster Recovery
Athletes commonly use cryotherapy to improve muscle recovery after intense exercises and reduce healing time after an injury. The main reason is that it can numb the pain, reduce inflammation, and stimulate processes essential for repairing damaged tissues. 
Inflammation is a signal that your body is fighting something. It can occur when you have an injury, acute illness, or some other chronic condition. Cryotherapy decreases oxidative stress that damages the cells and reduces inflammation, significantly improving well-being and healing abilities. [3, 4]
However, most studies so far have been performed on rats, and we need some clinical research that confirms the findings of animal model studies.
Our patients use cryotherapy every day, and we can directly observe its effects on them. The main benefit is a significant change in mood and energy levels.
The extreme cold can induce hormonal changes in our bodies, such as the release of endorphins, noradrenalin, and adrenaline. These chemicals positively affect our mood and well-being, and some studies even propose cryotherapy as part of the treatment for anxiety and depression.
