Athletes at the professional, collegiate, high school or recreational level all have one thing in common. They want faster recovery allowing them to keep a consistent and frequent training schedule, which is key to skill development and higher performance.
Whether you’re injured or just recovering from delayed muscle soreness, whole body
cryotherapy can help boost recovery time, maximizing performance and giving you a
competitive advantage. Whole body cryotherapy can be used regularly to help you effectively attain your sport or fitness goals by improving recovery time, allowing you to push past your threshold to new limits, enabling you to train harder, resulting in a stronger you!
Let’s dive a little deeper.
Benefits of whole body cryotherapy
Whole body cryotherapy works in a variety of ways to help speed up your healing and recovery time after a sports injury or training session:
Muscle repair: Cryotherapy increases circulation by exposing the body to ultra-cool air, purifying the blood and transporting nutrients and oxygen to the body’s soft tissue. This accelerates the healing process in muscles by reducing inflammation and decreasing muscle spasms.
Pain management: While your skin cools off to about 50 degrees Fahrenheit, your core body temperature remains mostly the same during the cryogenic chamber treatment. This short-term cold therapy stimulates the release of endorphins, in turn, triggering immediate pain relief. Simply, cryotherapy acts as a pain-killer by numbing the affected area, decreasing pain.
Reduces fatigue: Extreme cold causes the body to go into an alert mode boosting the immune system. One of the most common benefits of cryotherapy reported by patients is an increase in energy levels and a reduction of post-workout soreness.
Why are cryotherapy systems superior?
While applying ice to an injury may help relieve pain and swelling, it is not cold enough to
effectively penetrate deep into the layers of muscle tissue that needs the most recovery. Fresh from the freezer, ice is around 32 degrees Fahrenheit and loses its temperature within minutes, making the process of icing sore body parts time-consuming. The cryosaunas offered at CryoEdge Elite Performance & Health, on the other hand, reach up to -190 degrees Fahrenheit and provides a consistent flow of sub-zero liquid nitrogen, penetrating deep into your muscles within three minutes.
Comparing the vast temperature differences, time consumption, and other factors between traditional icing and modern cryotherapy, the cryo system is the advanced new standard for recovery and rejuvenating your sports injury.
Whether you’re looking for accelerated muscle healing, decreased fatigue or faster recovery time, cryotherapy can help unlock the current barriers of your fitness routine and help you reach the next level.
