Ice & Heat Application

Ice is an effective and natural painkiller and anti-inflammatory.

Ice should be applied over the inflamed area in the acute or early stages of your problem. (See below for application)

Whenever you experience swelling, redness or sharp / stabbing pain it is generally considered best to apply ice. Repeat until symptoms ease – usually for 24 – 48 hours.

Following this, you should alternate with ice and heat. If in doubt, contact your Chiropractor.

APPLICATION

Place ice cubes in a plastic bag or use a professionally prepared ice pack.

Place a damp face washer or tea towel over the problem area then place the ice pack on the material covering.

The first application should be as follows:-

10 minutes on
10 minutes off

10 minutes on
10 minutes off

10 minutes on

Then during waking hours, apply the ice pack every 2 hours, or as indicated by your Chiropractor.

Heat is an effective therapy for reducing muscular tension and pain and is best used AFTER the initial inflammation has subsided.

N.B. If you do not have ice immediately available, then use a pack of frozen peas or similar item.

    Everything posted was actually very reasonable. However, think on this, suppose you were to write a awesome title?
    I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t good., however what if you added a title that grabbed a
    person’s attention? I mean Ice & Heat Application – Bauer Chiropractic Centre is kinda plain. You
    should look at Yahoo’s home page and note how
    they write article headlines to get people to click.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get people interested about what you’ve written. In my
    opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    to say, and more than that, how you presented
    it. Too cool!
