Ice for Inflammation and Swelling


If you have inflammation and joint pain, and you’ve just injured something, and it’s the first few hours, or perhaps you’ve been playing a sport and your shoulder’s tight, rather than pop a medication, consider ice. Ice is free and it can do a great job at decreasing inflammation and swelling. Ice, basically, at a local level, will do the same thing that nonsteroidals and other medications do throughout the body. It’s not necessarily the only answer, but consider ice to reduce that swelling. It can make a really big difference.
