Ice is best bet for early treatment
Heat might sound more soothing, but applying ice to an injury is the best
way to keep swelling to a minimum.
"Ice should be placed on the area immediately after the injury occurs,"
said Dr. Lon Castle, a sports medicine specialist at Baylor College of
Medicine. "Heat actually increases the number of inflammatory cells in
the injured tissue."
Ice should be applied two to three times a day, for 15-20 minute periods,
as long as the area remains swollen. Castle warns, however, that applying
ice improperly can actually do more harm than good. To avoid frostbite,
place a thin cloth or other protective layer between the ice and your skin.
Skin that is red, painful and tender to the touch could signal a problem.
