Whole body cryotherapy in cryo-chamber for treating tendopathies

The origin of tendopathies, i.e. degenerative connective tissue diseases of the tendon attachments (tennis elbow, inflammation of the achilles tendon, heel pain), is promoted by chronic overburdening, and such conditions generally respond very well to whole body cryotherapy. The sometimes very severe pains upon movement already recede after 15 to 20 treatments. This should not lead, however, to a cavalier and premature overloading of the tendons. Protective behavior and a steady and moderate build up of load are important co-therapeutic measures.


The information on this page is inspired by the book "Power from the Cold" by Prof. Papenfuß. The author states explicitly in his book that the descriptions in his book (and on this page) are not in any way intended to act as a substitute for the careful clinical indication process and the observation of strict safety measures developed in individual cryotherapy centres, or as a substitute for the indication of whole body cryotherapy in combination with other treatments.
