Cryotherapy for Tennis Players
Tennis players face rigorous training and tedious practice schedules in order to compete in a highly competitive and physically demanding one such as tennis. Of course this is going to take a toll on Your body. Muscle soreness between matches and practices; as well as common injuries from intensive and repetitive impact on joints and muscles, are all factors that affect players’ performance regularly.
Cryotherapy for tennis players can be used as an effective treatment between practices and before any matches/tournaments in order to reduce inflammation and alleviate muscle soreness, allowing players to perform at their best. Another major plus is the Adrenaline and endorphins that are pumped through the body during a Cryotherapy session thus improving mood and increasing energy levels, which can help fatigued players before an important match or even players who are on top of their game so they can go out for their match in beast mode.
Speaking of Important Matches: The Seattle Sounders turned to IceHouse Cryotherapy after their dramatic win against Sporting Kansas City. They had a quick turnaround and needed their bodies to be feeling 100% again in a short time, whole body cryotherapy was the key.
Cryotherapy can also be used as a physical therapy tool to speed up recovery from tennis related injuries such as those affecting ankles, knees, shoulders and even recurring back pain from repetitive rotation. Tennis players can expect to see improvements in mobility and performance in affected areas with consecutive use of Cryotherapy.
