Ice v Heat MALWeb

Generally, use ice for acute injuries or pain, along with inflammation and swelling. Use heat for muscle pain or stiffness.

If you sustain a sprain or strain injury it gets worse later that night or the next day. The trick is to apply ice not heat, as heat encourages further inflammation, while ice reduces it.
