Cryotherapy Chamber Treatment
Cryotherapy is increasingly becoming a thriving industry throughout Europe due to the efficacy of the treatment for medical uses and also for aesthetic purposes in the beauty sector. The therapy has been in use for some time with athletes and those who undertake sporting activities due to the reported benefits and significantly reduced healing times.
Although localised treatments are available the key new trend entails the use of whole-body cryotherapy chamber treatment by athletes and sportspeople which is driving up the demand for more facilities to accommodate their requirements. This demand is one of the primary factors driving revenue growth in Europe with a projected growth of the cryo chambers markets within the next five years.
Benefits Of Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy utilises extremely cold temperatures in a non-invasive treatment that can be localised to one area of the body or encompass the whole body. With whole body cryotherapy, a chamber is used to achieve the desired temperatures of -135°c which leads to blood vessel restriction. This enables lactic acid to drain from muscle areas that are aching or painful. On exiting the chamber blood vessels then expand leading to oxygenated blood flowing back through the muscles and consequently leading to the enhanced recovery time. The treatment is effective and safe, and healing can be kick-started after only three minutes in the chamber whilst the ongoing benefits continue long after the session has ended.
In addition, there is no limit to the number of cryotherapy sessions that may be undertaken, and the deep cold tissue penetration reduces swelling and pain as well as supporting treatment of a range of other conditions and beauty treatments.
Developments In Cryotherapy Treatments
The cryo chambers sector is currently being driven by a sudden expansion in use by sporting and athletic associations coupled with the increase in sports injuries. The growth is also expected to include the take-up of cryotherapy chambers and cryosauna by many more fitness centres, spas and hotel chains during the growth period. This is likely to lead to regulatory development within the sector to ensure safety standards adhere as the treatment becomes more prevalent across Europe, particularly in eastern and central European countries for example.
Factors Affecting The Cryotherapy Sector
To summarise, there is a big economic drive to harness the expected mushrooming of cryotherapy chamber treatment throughout Europe which will lead to standardised safety regulations, market competition and the forging of a range of new strategic partnerships. Markets that will be particularly involved are envisaged to be sports clubs and associations, athletes associations, beauty spas and hotel chains to name some of the key players.
