When Ice is Your Friend

For inflammation in or around joints, unless there are contraindications for it, ice is your friend! Ice is one of the effective treatments of choice for inflammation. After gentle, low-force, precise Activator chiropractic adjustments to free up joint fixations and correct misalignments, I may recommend icing the affected area(s) at home. After any injury, use only ice, NOT heat, for the first 24 to 36 hours.
