It is not too early to train for Spring sports. It takes the average person about six weeks of steady and progressive fitness training to create adaption by the body. Given that fact, the time to start training is now! 

We can help you develop your Spring training plan. Contact any one or our clinics. We're here to help!

Heat or Ice? The question is answered!

ICE is ideal for NEW INJURIES. This helps slow the bleeding/swelling (actually preventing further tissue 
damage) and it dulls the pain. So as a rule of thumb, use ice for the first 72 hours after being injured. Ice is 
also good for AFTER activity/sport. After exercise the muscles are full of blood and there can be soreness 
from increased use. Applying ice on a joint/muscle can help decrease soreness and prevent swelling. 

HEAT is ideal when you are preparing for an activity. The heat softens the muscles and increases blood 
flow which readies them for use; hence, can reduce the chances of a stain. (if you do get a strain, remember 
use ice). Before using heat on an injury, make sure that there is no more active bleeding...normally the rule 
of waiting, again 3 days. Because heat promotes relaxation it can be useful for the treatment of stiffness 
and cramps.

COMBINED USE: Ice and heat can also be beneficial when used together. Examples of this are when you 
have had a recent injury and have lingering swelling. You can apply alternating heat and ice. This causes 
the blood vessels to expand and contract creating a pump like action that will help move the swelling out of 
the area. You want to begin with heat for 4 minutes and then apply ice for 1 minute. Do this for 4 rounds, 
for a total of 20 minutes. After this applying a compressive wrap 
can help keep the swelling out of the area.
