Ice is an effective natural pain killer and anti-inflammatory.
Ice should be applied over the inflamed area in the acute or early stages of your problem.
Whenever you experience swelling, redness, aching or throbbing pain it is generally considered best to apply ice during the first 24 – 48 hours of your injury.
Place ice cubes in a plastic bag or use frozen peas etc.
Place a damp face or tea towel over the injured area then place the ice pack on top of it for about 10 minutes and repeat after 10 minutes for 3 times. Apply the ice pack every 2 hours or as indicated by your Physiotherapist
