While cryotherapy can affect everyone differently depending on your needs, here are just some of the many benefits you can expect to get out of cryotherapy.
Get two chill sessions for $39! Limited time only!
If you’ve never done cryotherapy before, the idea of standing in a cold, vapor-filled tank might seem a little too futuristic. But most people rave about their experiences after just one whole-body cryotherapy session.
Cryotherapy is being touted by professional athletes, celebrities, and everyday people as a wellness treatment that actually works. While it sounds like something straight from the future, this treatment has been around for over 40 years! Lucky for you, our technology has gotten better every year, making cryotherapy more effective than ever.
Cryotherapy is actually a blanket term referring to any treatment that uses cold to treat various issues. During a whole body cryotherapy treatment, you stand in a cryotherapy tank, or cryosauna, and are surrounded by near-freezing nitrogen vapor that immediately cools your entire body.
We use cryotherapy with our patients for a variety of reasons. The beauty of cryotherapy is that it works to both heal and prevent many different medical issues. Some research has shown that cryotherapy can help with muscle aches and pain, athletic injuries, and inflammation.

You’ll stand in a small, octagonal booth for up to 3 minutes. Your head will not be in the booth and will not be submerged in any way. Nitrogen gas will drop the temperature down to -180°F, which will, in turn, lower your skin’s surface temperature. While your first cryo session may feel uncomfortable if you’re brand-new to the treatment, your body will quickly adjust, and follow-up sessions will be much more comfortable.
There have been multiple studies showing efficacy of cryotherapy for certain ailments and injuries. Additionally, the therapy has been in use for over 40 years, giving practitioners decades of experience fine-tuning the experience for our patients. Nitrogen is a naturally occurring, non-toxic gas and will not affect your ability to breathe in any way. At our practice, everyone is monitored by a chiropractic physician at all times, making our whole body cryotherapy treatments extremely safe.
You can wear whatever is most comfortable for you, but less clothing means more exposure to the nitrogen gas. However, we do require basic undergarments in order to protect you. We will give you gloves and socks to protect your extremities; we also have robes and shoes available. We will ask you to remove any piercings or other jewelry below the neck.
Most people can benefit from cryotherapy and it is safe for the vast majority of people. However, some people should not have the treatment. This includes people who are pregnant, are currently ill, have open wounds, have cardiovascular or respiratory conditions or diseases, have skin infections, are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and other conditions. Please notify your chiropractor of any pre-existing medical issues to help determine if cryotherapy is safe for you.
When you have an appointment with Dr. Barney, not only will he treat your spinal complaints, he will treat the surrounding musculature as well.
Adjusting the muscles surrounding the joints takes the tension away from the joints, easing the pain, helping you achieve results as quickly as possible, and giving you longer-lasting relief. This comprehensive approach sets him apart from other chiropractors who focus only on spinal adjustments, rather than treating the entire issue.
Outside of work, Dr. Barney loves to stay active by running and hiking. You might find him out with his wife, Christine, enjoying everything St. Louis has to offer and cheering on the Cardinals.
