Why You Should Use Ice

Be Sure to Ice!

Ice helps keep inflammation levels under control. This will help minimize the soreness you are likely to feel. Ice should be your go-to therapy not only after your first few visits but also any time you injure yourself. Ice/cryotherapy should be used, instead of heat, during the first 72 hours after an injury. While heat can sometimes have a benefit and usually feels good while it’s on, it can often times make symptoms worse.

It takes 20 minutes in the freezer for a typical gel ice pack to get cold enough to provide a benefit. Once it is cold, place it on each area that was adjusted for 20 minutes. Make sure there is something thin (t-shirt, paper towel, etc) between the pack and your skin.
