The benefits you get from a cryotherapy chamber are both numerous and varied, that’s why we go into a lot of detail in this guide for you, to fully understand all these benefits and why having one for your clients or at home is an absolute game-changer for your health and longevity.
The main reason for this is the huge reduction in inflammation (the body’s natural healing process) after having cryotherapy. Plus, the release into your bloodstream of oxygen, nutrients and hormones.
It also helps to flush out your system’s harmful toxins.
All in all, this allows you to return to training quicker and in turn train harder to become even faster, stronger, and win more.
Faster Healing After an Injury
For the same reasons as above, you can heal much faster from an actual injury as well as just intensive training. It can also help to reduce the pain associated with an injury.
Boxing, MMA, and UFC are all extensive users of cryotherapy, and all are very vocal about the benefits and advantages it’s given them, as professional fighters.
Other sports that suffer from repetitive strain injuries such as tennis and golf are also fast beginning to realise the benefits of cryotherapy and the competitive advantage it gives them over ice packs, cold water immersion, and other cold therapies. Even though Science proved the short-term cryotherapy benefits for sports medicine-related injuries or rheumatoid arthritis.
It’s not just sports stars that benefit from injury recovery, anyone can!
You will also experience less muscle soreness and spasms. The fast and effective removal of excess heat from the point of injury, while lymphatic drainage is drastically improved and finally, for the same reasons as to why hyperbaric oxygen therapy is very effective, you are increasing your blood flow of oxygen-rich blood cells, again speeding up your recovery time.
Cryotherapy is fantastic for stimulating your body’s immune system, via the improved production of hormones triggered by exposure to extreme cold temperatures. This in turn increases your body’s immunity to day-to-day infections and colds.
