Cryotherapy is essentially an ice bath on steroids, however, it takes half the time – and there’s no cold water immersion involved. Most people know that the go to for sore muscles and reduction of swelling from an injury is ice. This is the mindset behind cryotherapy, just on a bigger scale and with the whole body. With cryotherapy you can train harder, longer and recover quicker in order to help you achieve maximum results from your workouts. As temperatures rapidly cool, oxygen is pushed through the body to help reduce inflammation, relieve pain and recover the muscles.
If you have a sports injury, whether it’s a contusion or a strain, the blood running to the core and then coming back to the limbs with oxygenated blood redevelops injured cells and helps you heal faster.
Cryotherapy has been used for decades in sports and training to treat and relieve chronic pain symptoms associated with competitive injury and overuse and has been proven in sports medicine as a recovery modality from muscle and ligament damage due to the anti-inflammatory and restorative properties of intense cold treatment.
Cryotherapy sessions before or after completion of workouts help increase your energy, stamina and metabolic rate. Post-sport sessions will aid in recovery and injury repair.
