Government officials from Nevada have granted Rejuvenice Company the seal of approval. Cryotherapy clinic reopens after one employee was found dead in the of the freeze chambers.
Coroners arrived at the scene of the crime have discovered the body of 24-year-old Chelsea Ake-Salvation in one of the chambers used for cryotherapy. After performing the necropsy, they reported that Chelsea died due to prolonged exposure to nitrogen liquid, the cooling agent used for therapy.
An official statement has been made. Members from the state Division of Industrial Relation from Nevada, closed down 3 clinics belonging to Rejuvenice Company after they found out that the firm did not have the necessary papers to demonstrate that workers get proper insurance in case of accidents.
As to the reopening of the clinic, things seem to be somewhat unclear. From earlier statements, coming from the health authorities, it seem that Rejuvenice lacked many other papers and government approvals. Reporters who tried to contact the clinic’s representatives were unsuccessful due to the fact that no one returned their calls.
Cryotherapy clinic reopens after young Chelsea was found dead, in one of the cryochambers, on October the 20th.
What is cryotherapy and what it is used for? According to the traditional definition, provided to us by medical literature, cryotherapy refers to the use of low temperatures in order to cure light or severe lesions. By using the benefices of extreme temperatures, doctors are able to decrease the rate of cellular metabolism, thus granting the other cells an increase chance of survival.
Cryotherapy is also used to decrease inflammatory events, alleviate pains and subsequent muscle spasms and to increase the rate of vasoconstriction. Doctors also use this method in order to target and destroy malignant cells. Basically, they freeze the cytosol, the intracellular fluid that keeps a cell alive.
One other application of cryotherapy is surgery. Typically, cryosurgery is employed in order to remove abnormal or damaged tissue through the use of low temperatures. Cryosurgery is very popular in treating skin condition like moles, warts and solar keratosis. The procedure involves the usage of a freezing agent, typically liquid nitrogen, in order to freeze injured tissue all the way down to cellular level. According to the statistics, surgeons that employ this technique yield better results and the chance of side effect occurrence is marginal.
Among other popular cryotherapy methods are the ice pack therapy and whole body cryotherapy.
