– or “cryotherapy” – is the practice of applying something cold to the source of pain. While cold therapy is not a new invention, it did not become appreciated until the late 1980’s. For years, cold therapy has been used to reduce pain, swelling and nerve activity using ice, cold packs, and ice baths. In fact, it was originally developed for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Benefits have been refined with great results.
When choosing your option from a variety of choices for recovery, consider not only what you have access to but also what fits into your lifestyle and sounds fun—for instance, yoga won’t calm your muscles or your mind if you feel anxious about getting on the mat. There are several approaches to recovery. Cold therapy ranks very high.
HOW COLD THERAPY WORKS
Ice baths, ice packs, or cryotherapy chambers may reduce pain and swelling by constraining the inflammatory process. Regular use of Cryotherapy promotes anti-inflammatory properties, which decreases recovery time by up to 50% to improve ability to train, recover and perform.
