If you are keen to explore a new, alternative therapy to help with arthritis pain, you may want to consider cryotherapy. The first cryotherapy treatment centre just opened in Cape Town, South Africa.

The procedure involves exposing an individual to ultra-low temperatures ranging between -120 °C and -160 °C in a cryogenic sauna for no longer than three minutes.

Localised therapy using liquid nitrogen is also used to target painful joints. In studies on inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and autoimmune conditions, all the significant results are achieved in between 20 and 30 sessions.
