Athletes and individuals who engage in physical activities and strenuous routines are prone to develop musculoskeletal injuries. Muscles and tendons can be overused which eventually leads to tiny tears, causing inflammation, which can be extremely painful and debilitating.
Along with traditional recovery methods such as RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) and physical therapy, Cryotherapy may significantly improve healing times for injuries.
By targeting the affected area with liquid nitrogen vapour, the temperature surrounding the affected area is reduced, resulting in less pain, reduced inflammation and swelling. The blood is enriched with more oxygen, nutrients and endorphins being released into the blood flow stimulating the immune system, improving the circulatory system and accelerating the recovery process.
Using Cryotherapy alone may achieve great benefits. Combining with soft tissue massage may further reduce the recovery journey.
