Ice is Nice – Use Correctly

IceDr Larry G Nassar (USA Gymnastics National Medical Coordinator) discusses the proper use of ice as an injury therapy.

Ice is nice but it needs to be done properly and as part of a therapy regimen. Just like so many other things, it can be overused. It is one of the most commonly applied therapies but it is also one of the most poorly understood therapies too.

I agree that inflammation is needed. However, the body can also “over do it” too. Too much of a good thing makes it bad. So controlled inflammation is the key. Too much bleeding is not good, too much inflammation is not good, too much ice is not good, too much…. Get the point.
