Jamie Vardy, who on Saturday equalled the record for the number of goals scored in consecutive Premier League games, has attributed his presence in the game to Leicester City’s investment in a whole body cryotherapy chamber from CryoAction.
Speaking following scoring an amazing 10 goals in a recent run of 10 successive Premier League games, Jamie said that he might not have been on the pitch, had it not been for a spell in a cryotherapy chamber as he recovers from a hip problem.
Jamie admitted: “I was very close to not playing, I’m not going to lie. Credit to the physios, they were literally working on me constantly. It was frustrating missing the England games but there was no point in risking it. I’d have loved to have played but it gave me a week off to recover.
“Obviously the cryo chamber that we’ve got at the training ground came in useful.
“It is absolutely freezing but it helps you in your recovery, so fair play to the club for getting that in.”
The whole body cryotherapy chamber provided by CryoAction to Leicester City Football Club provides an extreme cold treatment to enable rapid recovery and rehabilitation. The 3 minute treatment is delivered at temperatures as low as -150*C and promotes the reduction of the impact on soft tissue injuries such as the groin problem that could have kept Jamie out of the game and brought his record equalling run to an end.
CryAction director, Ian Saunders commented, “Obviously we are delighted to have played a role in helping Jamie Vardy in his fantastic record equalling run. This validation from the Premier League’s leading striker is indicative of the benefits that clubs get from installing a CryoAction whole body cryotherapy chamber and the reason why other clubs are now following Leicester City’s example”.
