How Cryotherapy Can Support Athletes’ Well-Being?
Whole body cryotherapy is now a treatment that is very frequently used to treat sports injuries, for its variety of benefits.
Athletes Can Benefit from Cryotherapy
There are many reasons why the field of sports medicine has incorporated cryotherapy as a regular practice to keep athletes in tip-top condition. It’s not just that it increases stamina. The list of benefits is long. Here are some of the reasons why athletes resort to whole-body cryotherapy
Quicker Recovery Time
After a cryotherapy session, there is a higher concentration of oxygen in the blood along with other bodily nutrients and enzymes in the blood that circulates back to the peripheral tissues, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. As this is all absorbed back into the body, there’s a boost in its metabolic activity and recovery. What this means is that the recovery process will be more efficient.
Improved Athletic Performance
Whole body cryotherapy has become greatly popular among athletes due to its ability to treat and relieve chronic pain, resulting in significant improvement in performance. Chronic pain is associated with overuse of tendons, ligaments, and muscles, leading to injuries. Cryotherapy has proven to have anti-inflammatory properties that are immensely valuable in the field of sports medicine.
Increased Competitive Advantage
Since cryotherapy produces more oxygenated and purified blood, it promotes a healthy environment for muscles and soft tissue to perform better. This enables the body to repair itself and become stronger, in addition to increasing its stamina during an active period like a competition or a game.
