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.

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

President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C. However, Obama, who was first invited to attend the event in January, will not be among those in attendance, according to a source who is familiar with the situation. This

Sarah Palin was photographed sweaty and make-up free as she ran errands around Anchorage, Alaska on Monday - marking the first time she´s been seen in public since a violent family fight this weekend. A fight allegedly broke out at a house party most of the Palin family was attending on Saturday night in south Anchorage, when daughter Willow´s ex-boyfriend Connor Cleary tried to get in a Hummer limousine after engaging in some unspecified ´questionable behavior´. Sarah´s eldest son Track left the fight with four broken ribs and husband Todd suffered a bloody nose. RealClearPolitics spoke with a source close to the

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

The musician, who converted to Islam in 1977 and put his career on hold, will play six concerts in December. The 66-year-old, who was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, is now known by his original stage name and Yusuf. He is best known for his 1971 recording of Christian hymn Morning Has Broken, a top 10 hit in both the UK and US. Stevens had a number of other hits during

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. The administration is simultaneously stepping up diplomatic efforts to

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us. My own experience with marijuana was somewhat similar

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand dropped an f-bomb during an interview Monday, while trashing a loudmouth male colleague who criticized her weight. The New York Democrat said she was enraged when the politician had the gall to tell her she was too fat to win election after giving birth to her second child. “I had to just sit there and talk to him,” Gillibrand said in the interview, posted on the Huffington Post. “I switched the subject and I didn’t hear another word he said, but I wasn’t in a place where I could tell him to go f–k himself.”

Just call her a pit bull without lipstick! Sarah Palin is proving she has a sense of humor about the makeup-free photos that surfaced this week. On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident.
