use of low temperatures in medical therapy

Cryotherapy is using a freezing chamber (usually -110 degrees) to help muscles recover. Cyrotherapy is said to multiple applications. The word "Cryo" comes from Greek language, which means icy or cold. Cryotherapy is a procedure that exposes the body to temperatures colder than -200 degrees for about 3 minutes.[1] The practice is said to have originated in Japan in late 1970s when a Japanese rheumatologist used cold temperatures to treat his patients painful joints.[2] Cryotherapy is also used to treat cancer, wherein, extreme cold temperatures destroy cancer cells which is made due to cryotherapy chambers.[3][4]
