Even the most elite athletes succumb to wear and tear from sports and training over time, and old injuries can rear their ugly heads, causing pain and stiffness. Yet being the warrior you are, “suck it up” may be your mantra as you try to push through the pain to save face and gain victory.
For most athletes and fitness enthusiasts, giving up sports and physical activity is not an option. Pain relievers like NSAIDs may temporarily mask aches and pains, but excess use can lead to gastrointestinal issues that interfere with digestion and lead to other health complications. Similarly, steroid injections may be effective against pain and inflammation, but the effects soon wear off. And hey, you can always fill your tub with ice and take a frosty soak…Brrrrrrr!
Lucky for you, there is a new cool kid in town, and it is the darling of sports teams and athletes who know what it is like to play through pain!
Ice Bath Meets Technology
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) embraces the basic concept of the ice bath and marries it to technology to take the sting out of your soak. Using nitrogen gas instead of ice water, WBC cools your skin’s surface for a quick two to three minutes in a chamber called a CryoSauna, dropping temperatures to a frigid range of – 220°F to -274°F. During the brief procedure, you will relax, safe and comfortable in the CryoSauna.
Once you emerge from your WBC session and your body begins to warm, you will feel energized and renewed. Inflammation, aches and pains will be diminished and agility will be restored. Your body will begin to generate new cells and healing pathways for your achy joints and muscles. Ongoing treatments on a regular basis can keep you in the game, longer, stronger, and playing more like your old self.
Benefits of WBC Include:
- Decreased soreness, pain and inflammation
- Reduced post-exercise DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness)
- Increased energy and performance
- Faster return to play
- Increased training volume
- Improved joint function
- Bolstered immune system
- Better sleep quality and reduced fatigue
