Cryotherapy Research discussion with Sean Kennedy, live from the Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine Update. What is current science telling us?
Cryotherapy – What do you tell them?
We have a lot of interpretations, so it makes it hard for there to be clear guidance
Cryo after injuries – there is no hard science about dosing for ice
Think about the messaging (chemical and nerve) that may be delayed
There is a place to allow the swelling to do its job.
Evidence shows compression edges out ice but can be used together easily.
Listen to the theories and allow your mind to be open. Do not be a stagnant clinician.
Cold water emersion
We used to believe it would send them into shock and the heat would stay in the core
All position statements say full body immersion is the standard to lower core temperature
Joint application only could take 80 minutes to cool the body
It could be 3-5 minutes with cold water immersion
Cryotherapy Recovery from workout
What is the value of reducing the perceived soreness from the damage that was done?
If you are trying to mask the fatigue by ice bath you are increasing the risk of injury.
