Subject:         Opinion on icing sports injuries?

Hey Doug,

Im curious of your opinion of using ice on a swollen joint to ease pain. The
swelling is the bodies reaction to bring fresh blood and limit mobility so healing
can occur, right? Is icing just limiting the bodies ability to heal?

I tore my meniscus and am trying to heal without surgery. The common
knowledge is that the meniscus cant heal itself because of limited blood flow. Im
doing other excersizes to pump fresh blood around and using a sort of laser,
from a chiropractor friend, to stimulate blood flow. Im using ice here or there,
just wondering if limiting the much needed blood flow to heal the cartledge.

As always, thanks so much for your time. The fact that you've been here
answering questions on this board for charity for all these years, really inspires
me to be more selfless. Throughout day to day experiences, I sometimes think
back to ,"what would doug do?" Thanks for everything,
