Cryotherapy in Santa Clarita, CA
Try Whole-Body Cryotherapy with Unruh Spine Centers
If you’ve ever taken an ice bath for sore, achy muscles or iced a sprained ankle, you understand cryotherapy. Cryotherapy translates to “cold therapy,” and includes any kind of treatment with freezing or near-freezing temperatures. Using an ice pack on an injury is a localized form of cryotherapy, and some doctors are starting to offer whole-body cryotherapy for pain relief and muscle recovery.
At Unruh Spine Centers, we are committed to easing your pain and promoting your overall wellbeing. Cryotherapy is just one of the many services we offer.
If you are experiencing pain or muscle tension, consider joining us for a whole-body cryotherapy treatment.
You can learn more about cryotherapy on this page and discuss your pain-relief options with our experts at (661) 338-5167.
How Does Cryotherapy Work?
During whole-body cryotherapy, you immerse your body in an enclosed chamber with subzero temperatures (usually minus 200 to minus 300 degrees Fahrenheit) for 2 to 4 minutes. In most cases, you will stand in a can-like enclosure that is open at the top, and your head will remain at room temperature while your torso and legs are exposed to ultra-cool temperatures.
After cryotherapy, many people feel refreshed and euphoric and experience pain relief and reduced swelling. Athletes may choose whole-body cryotherapy because it helps with muscle recovery and may be more efficient than ice packs or ice baths.

Benefits of Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy has several potential benefits and few risks and side effects, especially when administered correctly. Studies show cryotherapy may help with:
- Migraine headaches
- Nerve irritation
- Arthritic pain
- Inflammatory and oxidative stress
- Back pain
- Skin conditions
- Muscle aches and pains
- Sports recovery
- And more
Some people find cryotherapy offers temporary relief after a sports injury, and others use cryotherapy regularly to manage chronic pain. Scientists are still learning how cryotherapy works over time, and in the short term, you can think of cryotherapy as an ultra-efficient ice bath.
The most common side effect of cryotherapy is temporary numbness, tingling, redness, and irritation of the skin that goes away within 24 hours. As long as you never use whole-body cryotherapy for more than 4 minutes, you should avoid the other risks, which include frostbite, burns, and eye injury.
Cryotherapy involves extreme temperatures, and it isn’t appropriate for everyone.
