Icing an Injury is Not as Important as Once Thought?

December 4, 2012

Mark Sisson is on a roll. He just put up another thought provoking post. He suggests that icing an injury may not be necessary for most common injuries.

Quote from article:

I’ve said this before, but inflammation is a necessary response to injury. It’s the inflammatory response that increases blood and lymphatic flow to and from the injured tissues, bringing healing nutrients and inflammatory mediators and removing damaged refuse. It’s the inflammatory response that makes injuries hurt, which prevents us from using and re-injuring the injured area.

Do we want to use ice in order to reduce the inflammation incurred after a soft tissue injury?
