Ice and Anti-inflammatory Drugs delay healing – new advice

New research is now contradicting advice to apply ice or use anti-inflammatory drugs for damaged tissues.

It is now recommended that you stop exercising immediately when injured and elevate injured area to minimise swelling. Ice can be applied for 10 mins at a time for no longer than first six hours after injury to reduce pain.  Click on link below for for more info.
