Whole Body Cryotherapy

  • By scarlet

    My mom has had success with Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments in alleviating the symptoms associated with her RA. She has less stiffness in her joints and hands, and has been able to join in activities and live life more fully. Just wanted to share in case it was available near any other sufferers. We live in MN, and are so fortunate to have a Cryotherapy Center near us. It has been a game-changer.

    Hi Scarlet ~

    That’s great that your mom has found something that works for her to help alleviate her symptoms. Everyone experiences RA so differently, so it’s amazing the different types of alternatives that work for different people! I would, however, be sure to encourage your mom to keep seeing a rheumatologist – since RA is a systemic disease that is about more than just symptoms. A rheumatologist can monitor and treat your mother to make sure long-term joint destruction is avoided as much as possible.

    Best of luck!
