Georgetown University adds Cryotherapy to new Athletic Center
Cryotherapy is becoming a popular trend for professional athletes who want to try this quick recovery treatment. In Europe and United States more and more teams are choosing to install chambers in order to replace the typical tub of ice water.
According to Sport Techie, Georgetown University started to adopt Cryotherapy. “While the medical research community is still evaluating claims regarding whole body cryotherapy’s lasting physical effects, cryotherapy is claimed by many who have experienced it as providing an invigorating, euphoric experience and is used as an alternative to traditional ice baths,” Georgetown Assistant Athletics Director for Student-Athlete Health and Wellness Shawn Hendi said in a statement.
There are several Universities who are satisfied about Cryotherapy’s effects such as Georgia Tech or Wake Forest.
