Cryotube Ice Baths and Recovering From The Car Accident
So, if you have read my blog, you will probably know I was in a pretty ugly car accident this past Thursday evening. The cars - a taxi, and a Ford Explorer - looked like a serious mess from the outside, but in all fairness (and thanks) the cars were both so well designed to protect against collisions that I, along with the others who were involved walked away only a bit bruised and banged up. It could have been much, much worse. Thank God nobody was seriously hurt.
But that doesn't mean I am not sore. My body aches! Or should I say, my body aches a whole lot less that what I was expecting considering the impact, and how I felt over the past two days.
Seriously, I went from bad to worse to ... Hello Cryotube Ice Bath Recovery - Where have you been my whole life!
Over the past two days I took two Cryotube Ice baths to help my body heal. Last night, I felt some of the sweliing go down and my body a little less sore. However, earlier this evening I took another amazing ice bath using the Cryotube. And I can't begin to share how amazing my body feels!
The Cryotube Ice Bath has allowed me to quickly rehabilitate from my rather serious body injuries and general soreness that occurred due to the accident. HOW Remarkable. And surely, I intend to take another ice bath tomorrow - let the healing continue!
The following write-up about Cold Water Immersion was written by the folks at Cryotube. I am in the middle of trying to heal for my injuries, and I can't say enough about how Cold Water Immersion is helping me immensely.
And before you hesitate about getting into an ice bath - let me tell you this - the cold water really is not bad after you get use to it - which should only take a few moments. And if you are serious about rehabing from a serious injury - use Cold Water Immersion. And switching from an ice bath to a hot bath has been sensational.
Of course ... I am a proud member of the Polar Bear Club . . . but that's a whole other story.
