Well Being: Melting that
old advice about ice

Philadelphia Inquirer, by Art Carey

Original Article

Posted By:Calvinesq, 7/27/2014 4:34:46 PM

For decades, the standard method for treating injuries was RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. Everyone from Little League coaches to pro sports trainers knows icing is a sure way to reduce swelling, inflammation and pain, and speed healing. That has been the conventional wisdom. Now comes Gary Reinl, with 40 years of experience in sports, fitness, and rehab, with an iconoclastic message. In his self-published book ICED!, Reinl argues that icing is not only wrong - "an illusionary treatment" - but also counterproductive and harmful. "There´s not a shred of evidence that icing is helpful," Reinl said.

Comments:
Here I thought the science was settled. This new approach makes sense. Stop icing those injuries.

My high school football coach knew all about this (class of ´63). He would tell us ice packers, "Okay, go ahead- put ice on it. You might look pretty quicker, but you are gonna still hurt at practice tomorrow."

And it´s dang cold, too. I´ve never liked using it; a hot towel does much better for me.

Just goes to show science has a way of becoming ´unsettled´ no matter how much the know-it-alls resist it.

On two different type injuries - 10 years apart (2003 and 2013) - therapists applied wet hot packs to injured area after therapy sessions, with instructions to soak area in hot water at home.

No one ever said to ice anything.

There is one helpful beneift not mentioned. Ice is a great anaglesic. It works very fast to reduce pain and often is a more potent pain reliever than other medicinces taken by mouth. That certainly doesn´t dispute the claim that no ice is overall helpful, but not hurting has its benefits.

Pain is a signal to rest the area - not use it. This makes complete sense to me. Thank you for posting.

Didn´t William Jefferson Clinton (impeached, 1998) advise one of his rape victims to "...put some ice on that"? So it is a politically correct remedy, although temporary.

Nothing helps a severe backache like ice. Remember the pictures of Larry Bird lying on the sideline with ice on his back? I´ve tried ice and hot packs. From my experience, ice is a miracle remedy for both pain and swelling.

I´ve had hockey injuries that were treated with ice and those that were not so treated. Ice the first day, then heat and a slow increase in exercising the injured area worked best.

There´s a reason why therapy pools are heated to around 92 degrees or so. My pool has shut down and I´m definitely feeling the loss of its highly beneficial effects, half-crippled again. Soaking in the tub just doesn´t do it, must have the exercise. Am working on a solution, no worries.

Lavender and Peppermint Oils worked wonders for me from an injury. Like my recent knee cap injury, additional oils of Birch and Wintergreen were used. No Ice used but leg elevated and a knee brace made mobility a possibility in short order.

It´s the pits to kiss the cement driveway when being tripped, especially being 3 quarters of a century in age.

Ice works for acute injuries and inflammation, but what do I know? I only have 21 years of experience working in physical therapy.

Ice doesn´t cure everything, but it does help reduce inflammation and pain in most people. This guy is just BSing you to sell a book.

My orthopedic doctor said that you should never use warm packs unless told by a doctor after diagnosis; if you´re self-treating a strain or bump, ice will relieve the pain and can´t do damage, but heat can.

I think I´ll follow his advice instead of this guy´s.

The sign in the window reads "Save Meadow Brook Golf Club," but there seems to be no fight left.The carts are gone. The pro shop is a vacant stretch of green carpet. The phones go straight to a message-less voicemail. Last Friday, the club along Route 29 just outside Phoenixville became the property of the Phoenixville Area School District. It marked what might be the final chapter in a story that inflamed emotions last year when the district seized the 50-acres by eminent domain, saying it needed the land for a new school.

The New York Times finally ate crow for its bogus assessment of the Iraq coalitions assembled by President Bush and President Obama, issuing a correction Tuesday for its two-week-old claim that “unlike Mr. Bush, Mr. Obama has sought to surround the United States with partners.” The offending article was published on September 11, the day after Obama’s primetime speech outlining a military strategy against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The president promised “a broad coalition to roll back the terrorist threat,” a phrase met with approval by Times reporter Mark Landler. “Unlike Mr. Bush in the Iraq war,

A GROUP OF well-dressed college-age men and women apparently dined at an upscale Center City restaurant Thursday night before some of them brutally assaulted two gay men on the sidewalk just two blocks away. Internet sleuths yesterday joined Philadelphia police and reward-givers in a hunt for the group of clean-cut twentysomethings linked to the shocking assault. The chase heated up after cops released video of about a dozen white men and women wanted for questioning in the attack on the two men, ages 27 and 28.

EPITHETS HURLED by a surly crowd. A flurry of blows rained down on two men, singled out because they love someone of the same sex. It sounds like a scene from 30 years ago in some backwater town. But it happened Thursday, police say, when two men were walking two blocks east of Rittenhouse Square to grab some late-night pizza. "I want to find the people who did this," one of the men - whose identities the Daily News is withholding at their request - said last night at his home in South Philly.

Brownsville, Texas - With binoculars in hand, an assault rifle slung over his chest and a Glock pistol on his hip, a man named Will scans the banks of the Rio Grande looking for anyone trying to cross from Mexico into Texas. Will is a member of the Patriots, a group of heavily armed private citizens who use displays of force to intimidate people attempting to cross the border illegally. Since early summer the Patriots have patrolled an area near Brownsville, Texas. "If you spot them and shine your light on them, that lets them know that you're there," said the 25-year-old construction worker from Indiana who flew to Texas

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The officer posted inside the front door appeared to

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.
