The bones in our body are constantly breaking down and building back up again. When they don't build back up as fast as they break down, we call that osteoporosis and it can be quite debilitating and serious.
As we age these issues can become more prevalent, of course, genetics is also a factor. Thyroid problems, low calcium, and vitamin D also contribute to bone loss, as well as lack of exercise, use of alcohol, and smoking.
Chronic inflammation can be a big culprit in bone loss as the body reabsorbs existing bone. However, you can navigate to this website to know the benefits of cryotherapy.

It, therefore, makes sense that Whole Body Cryotherapy can prevent and treat osteoporosis due to its known benefits. In fact, that is what the Cryo Community has come to learn.
Indeed a Polish research study done in 1998 shows that Whole Body CryoTherapy treatment; 2-sessions a day (with 3-hours in between) for 2-6 weeks treats Osteoporosis.
The research states that CryoTherapy works by reducing pain and swelling while increasing strength and relaxing skeletal muscles and increasing the range of motion of joints.
The main advantage in CryoTherapy to other treatments is a quicker time to complete treatment, that and the speed at which the patient notices the differences and progress, thus also psychologically helping the process.
Chronic inflammation is damaging to all types of cells and bone is no different," and then explains how cryotherapy solves these challenges. This paper is extremely well cited.
