A bit like Sy Sperling with Hair Club, Jaylon Smith is not only a cryotherapy client, but he’s also an investor.

Smith, the Cowboys linebacker who suffered a horrible knee injury in his last college football game but eventually recovered well enough that he started all 16 games last year, is now investing in iCRYO, a cryotherapy business, which he says helped him to get better.

“It’s something that’s been around, but not everyone has experienced it. I can be a voice, a face, for cryo and iCRYO. I just love what it does from a healing standpoint relieving muscle pain, sprains, swelling,” Smith said. “Cold therapy is wonderful, and I believe everyone should be doing it, not just athletes. It’s an energizer in overall life.”

Cryotherapy patients stand in very cold chambers, and its adherents say it can ease inflammation and help to repair damaged tissue. Although its effectiveness is unproven, it is growing in popularity among athletes who think it aids in recovery.

  1. Doctor of Physical Therapy here– yeah there’s a case to be made for cryotherapy. There’s also a case to be made against it. The problem with the medical field is that every two years everything you know is disproven. Either way, fantastic investment opportunity.

  2. I don’t know much about the medical field, but I know that nerve damage or loss of nerve doesn’t in any form sound positive, I was highly skeptical and not to happy when the Cowboys made him a second round pick, after this past season I will be the first to say I’, nothing short of amazed at how this young man can not only play, but play at a high level, his determination and drive to regain the form he once had is a miracle in itself, I applaud all involved in his recovery
