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.
Taking care of your health by preventative measures is always the best course of action. If you find yourself in discomfort please make an appointment with Mary Anne Lowery Chiropractor to discuss what assistance can be offered to you.
