Cryotherapy helps Fleet players back to fitness

With Kenny Clark, Dean Rance and Jack Connors returning to the Fleet squad these past weeks, the club has been seeing the benefits of cryotherapy to treat injuries through our link-up with Cryojuvenate UK.

It’s a relationship that has blossomed ever since last season when Danny Kedwell was given whole-body and localised treatment at Cryojuvenate’s premises in Sevenoaks and it helped him return to action much sooner than anticipated.

Ruth Hyde, of Cryojuvenate UK, told FleetOnline: “We put Danny Kedwell through a couple of whole-body chambers and a few local treatments and his injury responded well. Going on to play in those games was great for him, for the club and for us. It wasn’t 100% down to us, but our treatments contributed and we were delighted when Ebbsfleet won the final.”

Numerous Fleet players including Clark, Rance, Aaron McLean and Dave Winfield have undergone several treatments in the months since, which involve a process by which a chamber cools the body to temperatures as low as –92°C, speeding up the metabolism, reducing inflammation and thereby speeding up recovery time for injured players. Increasing numbers of athletes and sports professionals including international football and rugby teams are turning to cryotherapy to aid injury rehabilitation and the Fleet are one of several sports clients at Cryojuvenate that numbers Tyson Fury’s boxing team among current clients.

Fleet vice chairman Peter Varney has been more than pleased with the pay-off from the treatments. “The players are regular users of the Cryojuvenate facilities,” he said. “We’ve found the chamber has been very effective for addressing tiredness and aching limbs and the specialist equipment means we can target injuries. We’ve had good outcomes with players making a quicker return from injury than would normally be the case. I really can’t speak highly enough of the professionalism of Ruth and her team.”

Cryojuvenate UK is based on Sevenoaks High Street. For more information, ring Ruth on 01732 449411, email: or visit
