Whole-Body Cryostimulation (WBC) is used in sports as a method to relieve pain and inflammation, and recover fatigued muscle after exercise, but there are still few studies investigating its effects in clinical-rehabilitation settings. Nevertheless, data in the literature already indicate that WBC has the potential to be proposed as an adjuvant treatment in several pathological conditions of rehabilitation interest.
This article presents the rehabilitation areas that would seem to benefit from the additional beneficial effects of WBC, the results obtained to date and the next research goals in this field.
