Cryotherapy in Sports
The pursuit of excellence in sports is a perfect balance of mind and body. For many years, cryotherapy has been helping top athletes, to reach the top enabling them to push themselves to achieve their optimum performance.
Cryotherapy for sports exposes the body to temperatures as low as minus 160 degrees Celsius stimulating a range of physical and mental benefits to the athlete.
Cryotherapy is widely used in athletics and training to help to relieve and remedy the intense pain and detrimental effects of an injury and the over exertion of muscles, tendons and ligaments. The anti-inflammatory, restorative and rehabilitative effects of cryotherapy have been shown to have highly positive effects as a recovery protocol and as a result, have been widely adopted by sports medicine practitioners.
The rush of oxygenated blood, nutrients and enzyme that flood the body after having a cryotherapy session, offer an elixir to the muscles, ligaments and tendons in the athlete’s body. At the same time, the bad biological products that result from intensive exercise, stress and the overuse of muscles are removed, enabling the body to absorb the highly concentrated and purified effects of exposure to extreme cold within the cryotherapy treatment. So, not only will your muscle recover faster but the body becomes more efficient, with the result that the athlete feels refreshed, suffers reduced muscle pain, recovers their range of motion and is ready to return to play.
The body’s reaction to a course of Cryotherapy treatments will enable an increase in performance. The rejuvenating and restorative effects of the treatment enable the athlete to respond both physically and mentally to the stresses and strains of modern sports. The effects of the cryotherapy treatment enable the athlete to push beyond the norm and to pump the oxygenated and enzyme rich blood around the body, repair itself and ultimately perform at a much higher level, helping the athlete to gain an edge on their competitors.
