As Wimbledon 2023 is halfway through its first week – lets talk about the benefits of Cryotherapy for Tennis players (and athletes/active individuals).
You don’t have to be an elite-level athlete to access the best recovery tools. The FIT Partnership’s is a space where everyone has access, no matter the level played.
- reduce inflammation in any painful and inflamed area
- reduce the risk of any long-term injuries
- increase sports performance
Incorporating cryotherapy into your everyday life can help to prevent injuries like tennis and golf elbow by maintaining a low-inflammatory environment throughout the body. Cryotherapy has been shown to accelerate healing so micro-tears, strains and exertion will not lead to serious injuries.
Some of the greatest tennis players of all time, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, use whole body cryotherapy to have a recovery advantage over their competitors, in 2022 we had Stan Wawrinka in for a session and we look forward to welcoming in the pros again this Wimbledon fortnight!
Cryotherapy is helping to change the speed at which a tennis player can be prepared for another match. Both players actively use cryotherapy after their matches, for quicker recovery time and to relieve injury pain in order to be a better player and compete against each other.
Mathilde Poignard, a PhD student in physiology and sports science said “many top players have been using the chambers during the tournament. Nadal is a regular, including a session after his straight-sets semi-final win against Roger Federer”.
But with all that said, you don’t need to be a professional tennis player to visit our facilities. Cryotherapy is made accessible to all – and the benefits are huge!
