What is cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is the application of or use of cold temperatures for various treatments. It has been around for thousands of years, and you have probably even used cryotherapy yourself. If you have ever iced an injury to reduce swelling or taken an ice bath after a long game, then you have benefited from cryotherapy. Our Cryotherapy facility kicks it up a few notches with new and improved methods on proven techniques to optimize the effects on your body, save time and allow you to get back out there and play more pickleball!

How does it work?

Cryotherapy involves entering an air-filled tank whose temperature sits below -130 (deg) Fahrenheit thanks to the help of nitrogen vapor. The chilly vapors cause a very thin layer of the skin’s temperature to drop. This is where your body starts to respond. Blood vessels constrict, skin receptors fire messages to your brain, and ultimately the cold triggers recovery and rejuvenation.

Your session will last only two to three minutes, but the temperature of your skin will have dropped significantly to allow swelling to decrease, your brain to release feel-good hormones, and your body to begin its recovery phase. 

Why should I try it?

Maybe you returned to pickleball after a little hiatus and notice how sore you are, maybe you battled for hours on the courts and now you’re experiencing a little “tennis elbow.” Maybe you are exhausted because your opponent kept dinking it into the kitchen. No matter how the match went, we want you to perform at your best. Cryotherapy will reduce swelling/inflammation, relieve pain and soreness, and provide a quicker recovery for your next match. An added benefit is an elevated mood and better sleep; no complaints there. 

What can I expect when I arrive for my appointment?

When you arrive at our facility, we will coach you through the entire experience. We will educate you on the correct way to enter the tank, apply the proper protection before de-robing, and fill you in on what to expect after the treatment. The session in the cryotherapy tank lasts under 3 minutes, but trust us, you’ll feel the difference. After cryotherapy, you can expect to feel rejuvenated, more alert, and ready to get back out on the courts.
