Firstly it can be done mostly anywhere. You can run to fit in with your lifestyle. And it doesn’t cost anything, except for a good pair of trainers. But with so many people taking up running, it’s not surprising that running injuries are becoming more prevalent. Continue reading

CryoSpa recently hit the headlines when Andy Murray was seen posing in the CryoSpa ice bath with his Wimbledon trophy after his Championship win. The caption to the photo read, 'Holding this bad boy makes the ice bath that little bit more bearable.'
Not only are CryoSpa’s being used by professional tennis players at Wimbledon but they’re also being used by Team GB, Manchester FC and Widnes Vikings among others.
Benefits of using the CryoSpa ice bath
1. Shorter recovery time post-exercise
2. Faster resolution of soft tissue injuries
3. Reduces fatigue - lowers the risk of injury
4. Treats muscle/joint soreness, strain and inflammation
5. Promotes neural and cardiovascular system recovery
What makes CryoSpa the No.1 in ice baths?
It has the optimum combination of turbulence, thermostatically controlled temperature (from 1C to 14C), salinity and pressure (due to depth of water).
Aeration of the water has a two fold effect. When the body loses heat through convection as well as conduction the temperature drop will be much greater and be achieved much faster. Wind chill is a good example. Secondly, the massage effect influences dispersal of fluids and can also stimulate the muscle which is particularly beneficial for certain conditions such as quadriceps contusion.
The application of cold decreases pain and muscle spasm and, also, reduces tissue metabolism, blood flow (initially), inflammation, edema, and connective tissue extensibility.
Low temperature (1 C to 14 C) hydrotherapy is a relatively new concept in therapeutic modalities and can provide significant pain relief with a low side-effect profile.
The greater the depth of the water the greater is the physical pressure exerted on the tissues which, again, aids in the dispersal of accumulated fluids.
The salinity of water has an impact on the healing process. Higher concentrations of salt have a greater drawing effect thereby influencing the dispersal of fluids accumulated around the injury. Additionally, salt has a positive effect in helping to cleanse cuts and wounds by aiding in the control of infection.
Following the end of Wimbledon, the Daily Mail published a feature that referred to CryoSpa and the benefits of ice baths for sports people.
