Cryo Innovations Releases Statement Reg.the Oakland Raiders Antonio Brown Frostbite Incident
Antonio Brown's frostbite was the result of a failure to wear proper footwear.
"The Antonio Brown incident is the equivalent of running a mile in the snow, barefoot. When you go out in the snow, you put on snow boots. Likewise, you need to dress appropriately for a cryo session in order to avoid suffering unnecessary repercussions,"
Cryotherapy is one of the hottest trends among celebs, pro athletes, fitness buffs and everyday consumers for all of its many benefits. A fast and safe alternative to an ice bath, cryotherapy drastically reduces the body's temperature, forcing it into a fight or flight mode, where blood rushes from the extremities to the core. Once a treatment is over, the blood returns to the extremities, fully oxygenated and purified-- accelerating muscle recovery and reducing inflammation due to strenuous activity. In addition to pain and inflammation relief, cryotherapy also boosts energy, enhances weight loss, and rejuvenates skin. For pro athletes, it replaces the painful, 20-minute ice bath with a dry, 3-minute session at minus 225 degrees Fahrenheit.
"Cryotherapy is eight hours of drug-free, relief," says Scheinberg, whose XR Cryo Chamber is the safest and most technologically advanced machine on the market. Cryo Innovations has bio-metric check-in procedures in place that would have prevented the incident that happened with Antonio Brown. To ensure the safety of each person entering the chamber, Cryo Innovations provides two sets of protective robes, gloves, and booties with each chamber.
"Improper handling was the culprit for Brown's injury, not cryo. His injuries are very unfortunate, and they were also completely preventable by simply wearing proper, protective clothing," states Scheinberg.
