Ice Baths For Athletes

Many athletes and sportspersons have an ice bathing ritual post their performances or even after routine workouts to recover their muscles, by reducing the temperature, tissue inflammation and blood flow. This is also done to reduce swelling and pain in their limbs.

Extreme cold temperatures may work in the short run, and help athletes recover at a faster rate, especially if they are to perform again in the coming days.
