Ice -vs- Heat For InjuriesThe application of ice or heat on an aching muscle depends on the stage of the injury. All muscle pain is not created equal.
Ice and Movement for InjuriesIn an acute muscle injury (the first 24-48 hours) ice is the best treatment. It reduces swelling and inflammation, reduces pain and decreases metabolism of cells so they don’t need more oxygen then is available to them thereby creating less damaged tissue for the body to repair. In this stage of an injury it is often crucial that the injured area be immobilized, even after icing.
