Due to the nature of sports, injuries are an inescapable part of an athlete’s life. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, sports competitors suffer more than 2,000 injuries per 10,000 workers, making athletics one of the most injury-prone jobs in the country.
Infinity Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation says that with proper physical therapy, injured players can become healthy enough to play again. However, rehabilitation cannot commence unless pain has been successfully managed first.
The treatment center notes that in recent years, cryotherapy has emerged as an effective tool in fast-tracking pain relief. In essence, cryotherapy is the application of extreme cold to reduce the swelling in injured body parts, alleviating discomfort and paving the way for recovery.
Once cryotherapy has been deemed appropriate for an athlete, they will be made to sit in an enclosed booth wherein cold air blows. The patient is made to sit in the chamber for 3-5 minutes, inside which the temperature will drop to between negative 200-300°F. This brief but intense exposure to sub-zero temperatures quickly diffuses swelling caused by injuries.
Infinity Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation adds that cryotherapy is an ideal complement to other rehabilitative procedures such as massage, myofascial release, kinesiotaping, and electrical stimulation.
A company representative says: “For an athlete, their body is their greatest asset. But playing competitively also means running the risk of incurring injuries. With cryotherapy, however, athletes have a cutting-edge treatment that can quickly and effectively treat pain caused by sports injuries.”
Infinity Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation is a treatment center that focuses on physiatry and physical therapy. Its specialties include the treatment of chronic and acute pain, orthopedic conditions, and muscle weakness and imbalance.
