Ice Bath Led to Manny Harris Being Waived?
Although there haven’t been any definitive US studies on cryotherapy’s effectiveness, Millennium ICE is doing well and the machine is gaining traction. The Mavericks used it last season and the Houston Rockets and the San Antonio Spurs just bought machines that cost $50,000 each. That’s why company CEO Eric Rauscher doesn’t want other athletes to miss the waiver warnings about wet clothes.
“We will now be posting the warning on the machine itself,” Rauscher said.
Rauscher said teams have also made sure that the players take precautions. “The Rockets training staff won’t let players get into the machine unless they change into fresh socks in front of them,” Rauscher said.
