A common question we have when dealing with inflammation: Should I use ice or heat?
When to Apply Ice
First of all, if you have swelling and inflammation you should reach for the ice. Whether your injury is caused by sports of by a motor vehicle accident, a cold compress is recommended for the first 48 hours.
When to Apply Heat
After 48 hours, one can now reach for the heat if the swelling has subsided. Come visit your local Greensboro chiropractor at Club Chiropractic for more wellness tips.
