Why Ice and Anti-Inflammatory Medication is NOT the Answer

Written by Josh Stone

Why Ice and Anti-Inflammatory Medication is NOT the Answer

Another interesting article (along with the baseball pitcher and icing one) about the use of ice and anti-inflammatory medication in the management of swelling. A lot of the questions I personally have are around can we change the commonly accepted way of thinking but both practitioners and also athletes to looking at other ideas in the treatment of swelling?  Ice has been the go to for so many years (myself included) but is it truly the best option.  Can we be more proactive with muscle activation, manual therapy to lymphatic channels, and/or compression?  

The comments are very interesting at the end of the article and your thoughts are always appreciated.
