To ice or not to ice? That is not the only question.
I’ve been talking about this for MANY years.
Does ice work for injuries? These are the cases where it does: a severed limb, a temporary reduction in pain (from numbing), a reduction in inflammation to reduce pain.
Where does it not work? EVERYWHERE ELSE for EVERYTHING ELSE.
Yes, you should stop using ice for all your little aches and pains, and for speeding up healing… it doesn’t do this, in fact, it slows it down.
Watch the video for more details.
And don’t take my word for it. Try it out… see what works for you.
As with just about everything in life, adopt a mindset that has YOU in the driver’s seat, acting as the CEO of your own life. Listen to advisors, but take responsibility for your decisions.
It’s the only way to maintain your integrity and stay out of victim mindset.
