In one of the most amazing stories in modern football, CryoAction client’s, Leicester City Football Club have won the Premier League title for the 2015/6 season.
From battling relegation in the previous season, the club has fought back to take on the biggest clubs in the most intense and competitive league in the world and emerge victorious.
Leicester are strong advocates of cryotherapy, having brought in a rental chamber at the end of the previous season. They then embarked on an amazing run of victories that took them from near certainties for relegation to eventually finishing in 14th place.
For the 2015/6 season, the club decided to get a permanent unit installed at their training ground. CryoAction sourced and installed a cryotherapy unit for the club in the pre-season and later delivered a bespoke designed unit for the club.
The team and backroom staff are now strong advocates for cryotherapy and the technology has a key place in the recovery protocols for both post-match and post-training. Here is a video about just what cryotherapy
means to them.
This season, Leicester City have appeared at the bottom of the Premier League’s injury list. The club has managed to maintain the health and fitness of its key players. Most of have missed almost no football this season – in fact their 15th most used player, Nathan Dyer, has played just 213 minutes this season. As a comparison that is a quarter of the number of Spurs’ 15th most used player (Kevin Wimmer, 813 mins), and fifth of Arsenal’s (Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 925 mins). Its testament to the clubs backroom team such as Dave Rennie, (Head Physiotherapist), Matt Reeves, (Head of fitness and conditioning) and Simon Murphy (First team physiotherapist) and to their integration of recovery protocols including the CryoAction cryotherapy chamber.
We are delighted to work with such a great team with a wonderful team spirit on their truly incredible journey. Our congratulations to everyone at the club.
