Many people have asked us if cryotherapy helps with asthma symptoms. The answer is YES if you use a head-out machine. Unlike head-in cryotherapy chambers, there are cyrosaunas that use liquid nitrogen and keep the person’s head out of the cold air. With cyrosaunas, the cold nitrogen evaporates before reaching a patient’s mouth and nose.

Cryotherapy has many health benefits that can help with asthma: pain relief, inflammation reduction, endorphin release, norepinephrine release, etc. Cryotherapy can also help asthmatic individuals have an easier time when it comes to exercising. Most people with asthma do not have a regular exercise routine because of how difficult their breathing can become. However, medical professionals encourage patients with asthma to exercise so long as their asthma is under control. 

Exercise is essential in maintaining health and helping fight off asthma-related infections such as colds, bronchitis, pneumonia, and the flu. Cryotherapy can reduce delayed onset muscle soreness, relieve joint pain, and supply invigorating endorphins, thus making exercise easier and more tolerable on the body.

It is important to note that cold air can trigger asthma in some individuals. The airway can become inflamed, causing the bronchial tubes to narrow and make breathing difficult. If you have specific cold-triggered asthma, please discuss cryotherapy with your healthcare provider to find out if it is right for you.
