Most of us, from time to time, have had to deal with injuries—some serious [sprains and strains], and of course those nagging ongoing chronic aches & pains. Two types of treatments we’ve often used to deal with these common injuries are ice and heat—almost everyone has used a hot bath to treat muscle aches or applied ice to a bruise or a sprained ankle.

Few people though, understand how heat or ice affects an injury, when to use it, and why.

HEAT   COLD
Increases circulation in the body part where it is applied

  Decreases circulation to the area applied


Relaxes muscles


  Decreases the localized swelling/ inflammation

Increases cellular activity


  Decreases cellular activity and muscle spasms

Favours tissue elasticity


  Alleviates pain may cause a temporary stiff feeling
