Team GB Boxing used Hilotherapy in both the lead up to and during the London 2012 Olympic Games. The treatment was primarily used for helping our boxers overcome specific injuries they had sustained previously. The feedback from the athletes that used the treatment was very positive including our first ever women’s Olympic Gold Medallist Nicola Adams who used the treatment for her hand and our first ever women’s World Champion Savannah Marshall who used the treatment on her lower leg. The medical team responsible for using this treatment with our boxers would be more than happy to recommend its use to others.
