Background. Currently, one of the therapeutic methods of physical medicine applied in physiotherapeutic treatment of patients with ankylosing spondylitis is the whole-body cryotherapy - the short appliance of temperatures lower than -100°C in order to trigger physical reactions in response to cold as an adjunctive method in better preparation of pa...

In recent years whole-body cryotherapy is considered as one of effective methods of physical medicine in the treatment of many diseases, especially of locomotory system. In this paper the recapitulation of own studies dealing with the effect of cryogenic temperatures in the form of whole-body application in patients with ankylosing spondylitis is p...

Abstract: The aim of this study was to estimate the influence of whole-body cryotherapy on blood morphology parameters in patients with ankylosing spondylitis and healthy volunteers exposed to cryotherapy as a method of biological restitution. Subjects from both groups were exposed to a cycle of 10 daily, 2 minute-lasting whole-body cryotherapy pro...

... The increase in blood viscosity, ischemia and obstruction of capillaries can lead to a reduction in tissue oxygenation and impair the physiological functions of organs [34,35]. As reported by Stanek et al. [25], whole-body crostimulation (W-BC) seems to be a safe method leading to an improvement of rheologic properties of bloodand is recommended for patients with ankylosing spondylitis. Romanowski and Straburzynska-Lupa [24] also confirmed the effectiveness of W-BC in the therapy of patients with ankylosing spondylitis. ...
... Interesting results were obtained from research exploring the effect of WBC in rheological properties of blood [39][40][41]. Stanek et al. [39] indicate that WBC leads to improvement of rheological blood properties in AS patients. While the study conducted by Teległow et al. [40] documented an increase in fibrinogen concentration in individuals exposed to WBC, and Kulis et al. [41] observed a significant decrease in the elasticity of erythrocytes after WBC in older women with spondyloarthrosis. ...
... WBC has been extensively studied in patients with AS. Stanek et al. reported in two different studies a significantly reduced mean pain (VAS) score following WBC at -120°C and rehab, along with a significantly greater reduction compared to the control group with just rehab [28,31]. Stanek et al. also reported in two additional studies a significant decrease in disease activity as measured by BASDAI, and the WBC (-120°C) and rehab groups had a significantly greater reduction in BASDAI than the control groups that just received rehab [24,32]. ...
