      so what do you do for your aches and pains? minor nagging injuries? do you use various creams? heat or ice?

      myself i use a heating cream on my joints and muscles that i am training for the day. i also always put it on my lower back. if my back or hips are acting up, i suffer with the ice pack. knees are constantly iced if i am doing a ton of cardio also

      I ice during first 2 days of an injury. Use heat after that. Also DMSO is my goto. If it is just nagging soreness its heat and DMSO. This is a great topic, thanks GUNS

      I usually go to ice. Heat would be good if I had a hot tub, then I would do the Freeze/Thaw method. In the meantime I will stay with ice 99% of the time. Personal preference. It works so I stay with it. I only ice myself when I am messed up.

      I took sports injuries in college and

      ice promotes pain relief and decreases inflammation

      heat promotes blood flow therefore speeds healing and heat increases inflammation and pain

      I was taught to alternate heat and cold there is trade off to each

      I use ice on my back frequently. Sometimes I have my wife rub in some Namman Muay liniment. It helps with pain.

      DMSO works great for elbows and knees

      I also like biofreeze.

      I use heat on my back if it is real tight but if i do it too often it seems to hurt more in the long run. heat then ice works well

      The rule of thumb has always been in an acute situation, like an injury, NEVER put heat on it. It will feel great while the heat is being applied, due to the analgesic effect of heat, but as soon as the heat is removed, the area will be much more swollen as heat causes swelling. The first 48 hours post injury should always be ICE. Prefereably R.I.C.E. which stands for Rest Ice Compression and Elevation. Compression can be from an ace bandage. After 48-72 hours its ok to see if heat is ok. If it creates more pain afterward, you go back to icing. Best to follow up the heat treatment with ICE at least early on. That will negate the swelling effect of the heat. But the heat will definitely increase blood flow and promote healing.

      I use a Dit Da Jow that I made eight years ago, the recipe is probally three thousand years old and works immediately. From what I have been hearing heat is the way to go because you want to promote circulation and flow to the injury rather than slow it.

      Thank you for all the information everybody. I find it very helpful in the situation that I'm in right now. Three months ago my sciatic left side nerve started to really act up. I just got back from vacation of diving and snorkeling for five days and now I have a lot of stiffness and pain running down both of my legs, stemming from my lower back. Can anyone throw some good advice towards me on how often to ice those parts? Thanks for all of your help.
