Whole Body Cryotherapy
Whole-body cryotherapy (WBC) involves brief exposure to extremely cold air (-240°F). Traditionally, cryotherapy has been applied using ice packs or baths to enhance recovery and reduce inflammation. Originally developed to help treat chronic medical conditions, over the last few years there has been a large increase in the use of WBC by professional athletes, typically within 24 hours after training or exercise.
WBC is becoming increasingly more accessible to the public. Used frequently by the top athletes in the world such as LeBron James and Usain Bolt, cryotherapy is quickly becoming the top treatment choice for pain and muscle recovery.
