Still feeling sore from that workout the other day or are your muscles tired from working new movements? At CFN we encourage you to take advantage of the benefits of ice as it is one of the most inexpensive and effective injury treatments available.
Ice is good for new and chronic injuries and can help to reduce pain, swelling, and muscle spasms of sore muscles, strains, and sprains to name a few. To get the most out of your ice treatment you should apply after working out and not before, wrap ice in paper towel or thin cloth to protect the skin, and always ice for at least 10 minutes but no more than 20 at a time.
A more aggressive form of icing is called “Full Body Hydrotherapy” aka Ice bathes. Try it!
If pain persists ice injury every 1-2 hours and try elevating injured area for maximum benefits.
