Why Use Cold Water Immersion “Ice Baths”?

When you get an injury the first protocol is to apply an ice pack to the injured area, well an “Ice Bath” works on the same principles only for general recovery and in the case of an injury.

In simple terms an “Ice Bath” induces a flush like action (that helps the muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, nerves and all the different tissues used in sport recovery) from there workout in the following way:


-“Ice Bath” narrows blood vessels and thus decreases blood flow

- This reduces swelling and tissue breakdown thus reliving pain

- Once out of the “Ice Bath” the underlying tissues warm up

- This causes a surge of oxygen filled blood to flow back to the muscles

- This helps return by products of cellular breakdown to the lymph system 

for efficient recycling by the body

- Main by products is lactic acid which can cause cramp, fatigue, and a 

general feeling of tiredness in the muscles. (Delayed onset of muscle 

soreness (DOMS))
