Do you have trouble deciding when to use ice or heat? Here’s Melanie explaining when to use each modality.
When should I use ice?
Apply ice for when your muscles or joints are painful and achy. The goal is to reduce inflammation in the injured muscle or joint.
When should I use heat?
Apply heat when your muscles and joints are stiff and sore. The goal is to increase blood flow and enhance flexibility (to loosen tight muscle).
