To Ice or Not to Ice, That is the Question

dr. marcus performance physical therapy recovery Feb 10, 2021

What does icing do and not do? If you have an injury that needs attention, does icing help? Unfortunately, right now, the evidence is very mixed. Some research shows that immediately following an injury and it the affected area is swollen, icing is not the best thing to do. You want blood to flow to that area and begin the natural healing process.

After a few days, icing works great to numb the pain. But the best bang for your buck is to let that area heal naturally!
