Improved Muscle Recovery

Cold water immersion has been a popular treatment in sports medicine for decades to aid in injury recovery and enhance athletic performance. Cold water therapy can help reduce inflammation and activate the recovery of your muscles.

Pain Relief

Routine cold water therapy treatments stimulate the release of norepinephrine from your nervous system. This neurotransmitter can dramatically reduce inflammation and help with chronic pain. Norepinephrine can also help to improve mood and focus and help with anxiety.

Stress Relief & Improved Mood

Consistent cold water therapy treatments have been shown to help reduce stress by decreasing the stress hormone cortisol. These treatments also benefit your nervous system by activating your vagus nerve. Cold water treatments trigger the release of the hormone norepinephrine, a feel-good hormone. This can also help reduce anxiety and stress and improve your overall mood.

Strengthened Immune System

Cold water immersion is a great immune system booster as it stimulates leukocytes, the white blood cells that help fight off sicknesses, and your lymphatic system. Cold water therapy baths cause your lymphatic system to contract and push fluid through your lymph nodes, detoxing your body and strengthening your immune system.

Activation Of Brown Fat

Brown fat (brown adipose tissue) is a type of body fat that regulates your body temperature in cold conditions. Brown fat stores energy and helps you burn calories, and when it is activated (like in cold water immersion baths), your metabolic rate increases, and your body burns more calories.

Cold Therapy Combined With Comprehensive Chiropractic Care

The benefits of cold water therapy can be maximized when combined with other chiropractic treatments, such as chiropractic adjustments, cupping therapy, and laser therapy. With comprehensive chiropractic services, our chiropractors in Ames take a holistic and educational approach to foster improved mental, physical, and emotional health.

With treatment and guidance from an experienced Ames chiropractor, cold plunge therapy can help unlock a healthier and happier you!
