Phantom Pain and how to stop it!

If you have phantom pain, you know just how bothersome it can be. During whole body cryotherapy, your brain sends out a signal to every part of the body, and those signals report back to the brain. Let's say you have one arm. That phantom pain is causing your body to still "feel" like you have two arms. After completing your cryotherapy sessions, your body will no longer recognize the missing arm. Because those signals are reporting back to the brain saying,"There is no left arm," your brain's database is reset, now only acknowledging the arm you have, meaning no more phantom pain!
