For pain management and sports recovery, cryotherapy has become the leading method. This treatment is easy and painless, which is why many people who suffer from chronic pain are obsessed with it. This treatment is extending beyond pain management. Lots of athletes are choosing this treatment as their main sports recovery technique. Not only does this treatment work effectively, but it also comes with lots of advantages.
Reasons Athletes Love Cryotherapy for Sports Recovery
Typically, athletes take an ice bath after a heavy workout or game but this treatment can be an athletes worse nightmare. This helps with recovery since the cold and warm temperature changes benefit the body. However, while this method does work, it is not easy to do. Lots of athletes cannot bear the extreme cold, especially since they must sit in the tub full of ice for five to ten minutes, and sometimes even twenty minutes.
Cryotherapy treatment is better. This cold therapy treatment helps with sports recovery in just three minutes. Though the cryosauna chamber is full of cold nitrogen gas, it is tolerable and quick. Plus, this treatment is safe and uses only top of the line equipment. No medication is required with the treatment, therefore no side effects.
Upon leaving the chamber, cryotherapy does the following:
- Increases collagen production for healthier skin
- Helps with weight loss by burning at least 500 calories in one session
- Speeds up metabolism
- Slows skin aging
- Reduces cellulite
- Reduces chronic pain
- Decreases exhaustion, inflammation, and soreness
- Boosts the immune system
- Improves performance while speeding up recovery
- Strengthens the body against colds and flu
As you can see, cryotherapy does more than simply help the body recover. In just three minutes of this treatment, results are observed. That is something no other recovery method can do!
