The most important aspect about being an athlete is how you take care of your body. Although volleyball is not a contact sport, it still can take a toll on the volleyball player’s body due to the constant impact from jumping and the countless swings that one will take during a match. That is why us here with the Ontario Matadors would like to thank Definition Sports Massage (DSM). DSM specializes in cryotherapy which is any form of treatment using freezing or near-freezing temperatures. This can include cryosurgery, or cryoablation, where liquid nitrogen is applied locally to destroy abnormal cells (such as tumors or cancerous cells). Small-scale cryotherapy can include ice bath immersion or cryotherapy facials.
Whole-body cryotherapy (WBC) involves sitting or standing in a “cryochamber” for two to five minutes. During this process, a person will expose his or her body to liquid nitrogen in subzero temperatures, typically between -100 and -140 degrees Celsius. Patients are required to wear minimal clothing in the chamber, which can only include things like socks, gloves, approved underwear and possibly a headband and a mask to protect the ears, nose and mouth. Cryotherapy is a new and groundbreaking way to reduce inflammation in muscles and joints, and allows for a quicker recovery so our NVA athletes can get back out on the court as quick as possible. DSM also specializes in other services, such as sport massages, relaxing massages, cupping therapy, soft tissue mobilization, and Norma Tec compression, so DSM can be seen as your one stop shop for all your body rehabilitation needs. DSM is located at 14755 Foothill Blvd Suite D, Fontana CA and 420 W. Baseline Rd. Suite A, Glendora CA. So stop by and give our friends at DSM a visit and get your body right!
