I WILL CONTINUE TO SHOUT IT FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOPS (or atleast my computer)... STOP ICING THE CRAP OUT OF EVERYTHING AND STOP OTC DRUGS TO REDUCE SWELLING! I cannot tell you how many of my assessments are undoing RICE, PRICE, etc. I am so tired of coaches, PTs, doctors, parents, athletes, etc icing and ruining every chance we have of fixing injuries SUPER FAST!
A few of you who have been clients for a while know how against icing I am. I am finding more and more proof that my understating of soft tissues is correct. Believe it or not this kind of "thinking" keeps me up at night. In fact at night, in my dreams, I think of the most amazing concepts about soft tissue.
So, here is yet another article. If you are an athlete, MT, PT, Ortho Doc, mom, dad, whatever, it is worth reading BOTH parts!
On the real tip, even the guy who coined RICE has since said he was wrong: http://drmirkin.com/fitness/why-ice-delays-recovery.html
OK I am down off my soap box...
