The Effect of Whole-Body Cryotherapy at Different Temperatures on Proinflammatory Cytokines, Oxidative Stress Parameters, and Disease Activity in Patients with Ankylosing Spondylitis.

Straburzyńska-Lupa A, Kasprzak MP, Romanowski MW, Kwaśniewska A, Romanowski W, Iskra M, Rutkowski R

Patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) have increased production of proinflammatory cytokines, increased oxidants, and decreased antioxidant capacity. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of whole-body cryotherapy (WBC) at -110°C and -60°C, on disease activity, selected proinflammatory cytokines, and oxidative stress in patients with AS. Sixty-five patients...

Effects of lymphatic drainage and cryotherapy on indirect markers of muscle damage.

Behringer M, Jedlicka D, Mester J

Muscle enzymes are cleared from the extracellular space by the lymphatic system, while smaller proteins enter the bloodstream directly. We investigated if manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), local cryotherapy (CRY), and rest (RST) differently affect the time course of creatine kinase (CK, 84 kDa) and heart-type fatty acid binding protein (h-FABP,...

The effect of cryotherapy on total antioxidative capacity in patients with active seropositive rheumatoid arthritis.

Hirvonen H, Kautiainen H, Moilanen E, Mikkelsson M, Leirisalo-Repo M

Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have increased oxidative stress, decreased antioxidant levels, and impaired antioxidant capacity. Cold treatments are used to relieve joint inflammation and pain. Therefore, we measured the effect of cold treatments on the antioxidative capacity of RA patients with active disease. Sixty patients were randomized to (1)...
