Abstract Cryotherapy is used in the early treatment of acute injuries (sprains, strains, fractures) yet only a few papers discuss the possible influence of whole-body cryostimulation on inflammation mechanisms or immunology. It is postulated that cold exposure can have an immunostimulating effect related to enhanced noradrenaline response and can be connected with paracrine effects. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of different sequences of whole-body cryostimulations on the… Expand
Whole-Body Cryostimulation - Potential Beneficial Treatment for Improving Antioxidant Capacity in Healthy Men - Significance of the Number of Sessions
TLDR
The obtained results indicate that cryogenic temperatures in repeated daily treatments result in changes in the peroxidant and antioxidant status, which seem to depend on the number of cryostimulations. Expand
Whole-body cryostimulation as an effective way of reducing exercise-induced inflammation and blood cholesterol in young men
TLDR
The main finding of this study was that a series of 10 sessions of whole body cryostimulation significantly reduced the inflammatory response induced by eccentric exercise and the lipid profile was improved, but there was no effect on energy expenditure during the exercise. Expand
Whole-body cryostimulation as an effective method of reducing low-grade inflammation in obese men
TLDR
Results suggest that whole body cryostimulation can be a supplementary method for obese in reducing systemic inflammation and coldness exposures affected blood cytokine profile; however, the response depended on subjects’ fitness capacity. Expand
Whole-Body Cryotherapy in Athletes: From Therapy to Stimulation. An Updated Review of the Literature
TLDR
This article reviewed the most recent literature on whole-body cryotherapy, from 2010 until present, in order to give the most updated insight into this therapeutic strategy, whose rapidly increasing use is not always based on scientific assumptions and safety standards. Expand
Time-Course of Changes in Inflammatory Response after Whole-Body Cryotherapy Multi Exposures following Severe Exercise
TLDR
Results indicated that the WBC was effective in reducing the inflammatory process, and may be explained by vasoconstriction at muscular level, and both the decrease in cytokine activity pro-inflammatory, and increase in cytokines anti-inflammatory. Expand
Whole- and partial-body cryostimulation/cryotherapy: Current technologies and practical applications.
TLDR
The aim of this review is to compare whole- and partial-body cryotherapy effects and to classify the protocols for exposure according to the desired effects, and to emphasise the heterogeneity among the exposure protocols that have been reported in the scientific literature. Expand
Serial whole-body cryotherapy in fibromyalgia is effective and alters cytokine profiles
TLDR
Serial WBC is a fast acting and effective treatment for FM and proven effects of WBC may be explained by changes in cytokines. Expand
Efficacy of the Whole-Body Cryotherapy as Add-on Therapy to Pharmacological Treatment of Depression—A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Whole-body cryotherapy is a useful method to improve standard pharmacological treatment and reduces mental health deterioration, especially in mood disorders, such as depression, and can be beneficial for well-being and quality of life. Expand
Effect of frequent WBC treatments on the back pain therapy in elderly men
TLDR
Whole-body cryotherapy is effective in treating patients with lower back pain and has proven significant condition improvement and enable the researchers to conclude that WBC is effective. Expand
The Effect of Whole-Body Cryotherapy at Different Temperatures on Proinflammatory Cytokines, Oxidative Stress Parameters, and Disease Activity in Patients with Ankylosing Spondylitis
TLDR
WBC at −110°C had a positive effect on lowering AS clinical activity as measured by the BASDAI, and all the studied groups showed significantly decreased posttherapy disease activity expressed as a function of the BASdaI, ASDAS-CRP, and the IL-8 concentration. Expand

Changes in lipid profile in response to three different protocols of whole-body cryostimulation treatments.
TLDR
The aim of this research was to estimate the influence of 5, 10 and 20 sessions of 3 min-long exposures to cryogenic temperature on the lipid profile in physically active men and found that changes in lipid profile occurred after at least 10 sessions of cryostimulation. Expand
Do sessions of cryostimulation have influence on white blood cell count, level of IL6 and total oxidative and antioxidative status in healthy men?
TLDR
It was concluded that repeated expositions to extremely low temperatures use in cryostimulation have mobilization effect on immunological system. Expand
Effects of whole-body cryotherapy on serum mediators of inflammation and serum muscle enzymes in athletes
TLDR
As measured by changes in serum CK and LAD concentrations, and cytokines pathway, short-term cold air exposure was found to improve recovery from exercise-induced muscle injury and/or damage associated with intense physical training. Expand
Acute effect of a single whole-body cryostimulation on prooxidant–antioxidant balance in blood of healthy, young men
TLDR
The level of stress expressed by total oxidative status in plasma, resulting from exposure to extremely low temperatures, was statistically significantly lowered 30 min after leaving the cryochamber than prior to the exposure. Expand
Whole-Body Cryotherapy in Athletes
TLDR
The cold stimulation of whole-body cryotherapy shows positive effects on the muscular enzymes creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase, and it should be considered a procedure that facilitates athletes’ recovery. Expand
Effects of long‐term whole‐body cold exposures on plasma concentrations of ACTH, beta‐endorphin, cortisol, catecholamines and cytokines in healthy females
TLDR
The main finding was the sustained cold‐induced stimulation of norepinephrine, which was remarkably similar between exposures, which might have a role in pain alleviation in whole‐body cryotherapy and winter swimming. Expand
Effects of the whole-body cryotherapy on NTproBNP, hsCRP and troponin I in athletes.
TLDR
Whole-body cryotherapy did not impair cardiac function in this sample of elite athletes and N-terminal pro B-type natriuretic peptide levels increased but remained within the normal range, whilst troponin I and high sensitivity C-reactive protein levels were unchanged. Expand
Acute and long‐term effects of winter swimming and whole‐body cryotherapy on plasma antioxidative capacity in healthy women
TLDR
In the main, regular WBC and WS do not seem to be harmful as far as plasma antioxidative capacity is concerned, and there is a marked heterogeneity among subjects. Expand
Activity of selected enzymes in erythrocytes and level of plasma antioxidants in response to single whole‐body cryostimulation in humans
TLDR
It seems that a single stimulation with cryogenic temperatures results in oxidative stress in a healthy body, but that the level of stress is not very high, and the most significant role in the antioxidant mechanisms is played by peroxidase. Expand
Cryotherapy in sports medicine
TLDR
Cryotherapy appears to be effective and harmless and few complications or side‐effects after the use of cold therapy are reported, however, prolonged application at very low temperatures should be avoided as this may cause serious side-effects, such as frost‐bite and nerve injuries. Expand
