Stop icing your chronic injuries

Home » Medical » Stop icing your chronic injuries

Dr Gabe Mirkin: https://www.drmirkin.com/fitness/why-ice-delays-recovery.html who coined the term RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) in his best-selling Sportsmedicine Book in 1978,  concedes “it now it appears that both Ice and complete Rest may delay healing, instead of helping”. This has been picked up by media outlets this past week. See “Putting ice on injuries could be doing more damage than good” in The AGE (& SMH) and in the Washington Post. Aside from a few minutes of ice to avert bleeding into an acute injury, icing injured tissues beyond the first day impedes the body’s natural healing response. At our clinic we discourage the use of ice, which can be uncomfortable, on injured tendon and ligament tissue which is already devoid of oxygen and blood flow. Low Level Laser/Photobiomodulation therapy improves circulation, delivery of O2 and nutrients and also removal of waste products e.g lactic acid, enhancing the body’s own immune system’s healing.
