Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan has been having cryotherapy to ease the pain of the chikungunya virus.

The 28-year-old actress - who contracted the rare, untreatable disease from a mosquito bite in Bora Bora in December - recently shared pictures of herself and friend Brittany Byrd emerging from a -230°F chamber after receiving treatment, and admits she turned to the therapy to help with the joint pain she has suffered in recent months.

She said: "I've started doing cryotherapy after I got the chikungunya virus.

"It's amazing. The virus I had attacks your joints and cryotherapy really helps."

The Mean Girls actress has also found other benefits to the chilly treatments.

She said: "When I was doing community service in New York, from 8am to 8.30pm, I was having it once a day. It helps you sleep better and affects your functioning too. I like to be active all day, I love to cycle and walk."

But with Lindsay now living in London, her access to the treatment is more limited so she is hoping a facility in the UK will open soon.

She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "I'm trying to persuade Zimmer Icelab to bring cryotherapy to London as there isn't one here yet."
