Psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis therapy
Low temperature therapy normalizes the skin cells reproduction and suppresses the inflammatory autoimmune processes, i.e. it eliminates the causes of the psoriasis developing. Healing by extreme cold, extremely low temperatures
below minus 150°C.
The extreme low temperature for human organism works like a signal for mobilization of all processes of protecting the live itself. The production of enzymes and hormones, such as anti stress hormones (endorphins, dopamine, serotonin), is increased. It accelerates anti-inflammatory and healing processes. The medicine doesn’t know any other way to evoke such levels and complex of actions.

is a form of arthritis that affects some people who have psoriasis — a condition that features red patches of skin topped with silvery scales. Most people develop psoriasis first and are later diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, but the joint problems can sometimes begin before skin lesions appear.
Joint pain, stiffness and swelling are the main symptoms of psoriatic arthritis. They can affect any part of your body, including your fingertips and spine, and can range from relatively mild to severe. In both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, disease flares may alternate with periods of remission.
No cure for psoriatic arthritis exists, so the focus is on controlling symptoms and preventing damage to your joints. Without treatment, psoriatic arthritis may be disabling.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE:
Local as well as whole-body cryotherapy is used to relieve pain and inflammation in rheumatic diseases. In comparison with a chamber-based whole-body cryotherapy, the novel criostream whole-body therapy (single-person cabin with cold air cooled by liquid nitrogen) as an innovative technique offers not only a rapid therapeutic effect but also a considerable reduction in costs. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of whole-body cryotherapy in the criostream on pain reduction, disease activity and pro-inflammatory cytokines (tumor necrosis factor-[TNF-]alpha and interleukin-[IL-]1), and improvement in functional scores.
PATIENTS AND METHODS:
Ten patients with different active inflammatory rheumatic diseases (four patients with rheumatoid arthritis, three patients with ankylosing spondylitis, and three patients with psoriatic arthritis/spondylitis) underwent nine sessions of whole-body cryotherapy in 5 days for a short time period (at first 90 s, with step-up in each application to 2.5 min total time).
Pain and disease activity scores decreased significantly, and, subsequently, also the functional scores showed a significant amelioration. Furthermore, there was a significant reduction in TNF-alpha (p < 0.01) and IL-1 (p < 0.05). Side effects were reported only after the first application in two cases (headache and sensation of cold).
The criostream offers an elegant and, from the patient's point of view, attractive therapeutic agent in the multimodal treatment concept for inflammatory rheumatic diseases.

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune not contagious,disease.
TNF-alfa and cytokines are involved in the inflammatory process that leads to psoriasis.
The immune system mistakes the skin cells as a pathogen, and sends out faulty signals that speed up the growth cycle of skin cells. The individual must have a combination of the genes that cause psoriasis and be exposed to specific external factors.
Psoriasis triggers are not universal.
Various environmental factors have been suggested as aggravating to psoriasis:
* Acidic environment, acidosis
* Mucose, toxins in colon and body
* Streptococcal infection
* Bacteria or viral infections, including strep throat and upper respiratory infections
* Dry air or dry skin
* Some medicines
In general, psoriasis may be severe in people who have a weakened immune system. Psoriasis can also cause inflammation of the joints, which is known as psoriatic arthritis.
Psoriasis – treating usually involves a combination of treatment strategies.
Topical treatments - skin lotions, ointments, creams, and shampoos.
Systemic treatments - pills or injections that affect the body's immune response,
immunosuppressant drugs with anti-inflammatory effect, corticosteroids
Phototherapy - light therapy.
Relaxation and antistress techniques may be helpful.
Psoriasis symptoms can be relieved by changes in diet and lifestyle.
Cryotherapy helps through anti-inflammatory effect
