Ice or heat therapy provides pain relief and reduces swelling. But how do you know which type of therapy to use at what time to help your body recover faster?
Ice Vs. Heat Therapy
- Icetherapy is ideal for the first 48 hours when the injury is most likely going to be inflamed, swollen, and painful. It helps slow blood flow to the injury and reduces swelling.
Follow the RICE protocol to manage an injury in the early stages when swelling and pain is at their peak: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation.
- Heat therapyis good for after the initial swelling has gone down and during the recovering phase of your injury or illness. It helps increase blood flow to the injury which in turn promotes healing and reduces stiffness.
