Moist Heat Vs. Ice What is Better?

We at the Chiropractic Professionals of Columbia use Moist Heat and Ice Therapy.  Patient are confused to which to use, so I will try to clear up the misconception Today. I find patients tend to lean towards Heat, they find out very quickly that Heat causes their Inflammation to go wild. Inflammation Creates intense Pressure and that pressure is what causes your Pain.  I See and Hear it Everyday by patients who say to me,  "I put the heating pad on it and it felt so so  good",  "I sat in the tub and it felt amazing".  Eventually Patients remove the heat and that's when the Pain Sets in and they are unable to Move!  So Should you Heat or Ice?

Should You Heat Or Ice?

  1. Chronic Low Back Pain that is over 4 months old.   - You Heat
  2. New Sport Injury were you rolled your ankle.   - You Ice
  3. Fell of bike and injured shoulder.   - You Ice
  4. Chronic Knee pain hurts to bend knee.   - You Heat
  5. Swelling in Low back has been there for a few months.   - You heat and Ice
  6. Pain after a Chiropractic Adjustment.   - You Ice

When in doubt should you use Ice, or Heat.  Always Choose Ice!  Ice stops inflammation from affecting Healthy Tissue.  Heat will cause you to have a longer Healing time. We use Ice to stop Swelling. Swelling and inflammation is the body's inflammatory Response to an Newly Injured Area. We use Ice to keep the inflammation in the injured area only.  We Use heat to warm up area's that are Tight and Swollen.   If you ever have questions to what to use just give our office a call. -Dr. Benson
