For years, we were told to use RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) which was the standard for most sprains and strains. Recent research has shown that while ice may be helpful immediately, after an injury, continued use can damage tissue, prolong healing, and actually cause inflammation to worsen.
The new ideas are more about Active Recovery which works best. You may have seen our previous post on this which explains why things have changed and I have also included a number of resources and study links that support these new ideas.
