When it comes to pain, ice is the go-to pain-reliever. But how does it actually work?

Does it penetrate all the way down to the joint to decrease inflammation? Can tissue injuries heal just from cold exposure?

Today, I’m joined by physical therapist Dr. Sarah Court and we’re talking about all things ice, including when and why you should ice an injury, how it works, and what to do instead of icing old injuries (and why it’s more effective).

So if you’ve ever sprained an ankle, iced your back, or are just a curious body nerd, today’s episode is for you!

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • When and why you should ice an injury
  • How cryotherapy (ice) works
  • And why you don’t need to ice old injuries (and what you can do instead)
