Whether you are recovering from an injury, looking for more energy and endurance to keep up or decrease muscle soreness from pushing it a little too hard; you can benefit from cryotherapy. Miriah Johnson, a Freestyle Aerial Skier with the Park City Ski and Snowboard Club, has been using the therapy to bounce back from a torn ACL. After surgery and nearly a year of physical therapy Miriah still wasn’t at her pre-injury training levels. Finding it difficult to recover aft er training she followed a friend’s recommendation and added regular cryotherapy sessions to her training schedule; within a couple weeks she was already noticing a difference in recovery time and her overall strength and endurance on the ramps.

The whole-body cryotherapy experience involves lowering the body’s surface temperature for a period of 2-3 minutes via the use of Nitrogen gas that surrounds the body in average temperatures of -250 degrees. Th e body is tricked into producing a fight or flight response.

The body then activates all of its natural healing endorphins for further protection.

Th e Dallas Mavericks made it popular by calling cryotherapy their “secret weapon” and then going on to win 2011 NBA Championships.
