Benefits of Ice Therapy

neck and shoulder wrap

Using ice can help decrease blood flow and reduce inflammation and pain. This is beneficial with recent injuries or a worsening of an older injury. By reducing the inflammation, you can minimize damage from chemicals that cause pain and swelling. After the reduction in blood flow and swelling, removing the ice pack allows the area to resume normal blood flow with a fresh blood supply that helps flush out painful chemicals. Ice can reduce any bruising and numb the nerve endings for pain relief and decrease muscular spasms. It is good to use after a workout or demanding physical activity to help prevent muscle soreness and joint swelling.

Benefits of Heat Therapy

Heat helps to increase the flow of blood, which aids in muscle relaxation and increases the flexibility of muscles. When the swelling is removed with ice therapy or after and injury has passed the acute, inflammatory phase (48-72 hours), increasing the blood flow can help promote healing and recovery. Heat can be used before a workout to help loosen stiff muscles as part of a warm up routine to help prevent injury.
