How Often Should You Do Cryotherapy and Why?

Cryotherapy is a great cold therapy used by people and athletes of all levels. Cryotherapy can help speed up your body’s healing process as it reduces blood flow to the injured areas, thus reducing swelling and inflammation. 

People elect cryotherapy because it is quick and comfortable compared to other forms of cold therapy. Deciding on how often you should get cryotherapy treatments varies based on your needs, injury, schedule, and availability. However, just like exercise, diet, and other forms of therapy, consistency is key to see long-term results and to keep inflammation reduced in the body. 

In most cases, you will begin to feel the benefits of cryotherapy after three to five consecutive sessions. To keep the benefits occurring, many people generally do cryotherapy treatments one to three times a week. 

For elite athletes or people in training, you may want and benefit from daily cryotherapy sessions due to the extremes you are putting their body through. These frequent treatments will allow your bodies to return to their training quicker. In fact, some athletes even elect to do a cryotherapy session twice a day.

When deciding how often to get cryotherapy, talk to a cryotherapy specialist, like a member of our team at the Sports Recovery Annex. You want to make sure you’re doing the right amount to see the most benefits for your unique situation and needs.

Whether you exercise often or have an injury from a recent activity, you will see a tremendous difference in your recovery if you try cryotherapy. To find a treatment plan that works for you, you can talk to a member of our team at the Sports Recovery Annex. For those who train hard or have injuries, cryotherapy is far more effective and comfortable than an ice bath or ice packs, and each treatment only takes a few minutes! 

At Sports Recovery Annex in Jacksonville, Florida, we offer whole-body cryotherapy sessions. During these sessions, you will stand in a chamber (cryosauna) wearing only gloves, socks, underwear, and booties for up to three minutes as the chamber is filled with a nitrogen vapor to drop the temperature. Your body will be surrounded by cold air, and the temperature will drop as low as -200 degrees Fahrenheit. During the session, the body’s core temperature remains the same while only the skin gets cold. One of our cryotherapy technicians will be there to talk you through the entire experience.
