What Do You Mean ‘Don’t Ice’ Your Injury?
6 years ago, I came across some compelling research on the healing process for the human body.
And it went against the grain, just like so many things that we teach at Newell Strength.
What’s that you ask?
It was the idea of not icing an injury. I could go on to why that is, but that’s not the point of this piece.
The point is that we are all affected by cognitive dissonance to some degree; this idea that we are so entrenched in a belief that we cannot fathom the other side and refuse to see the other side.
Well, if there’s one thing I am good at, it is ‘emptying my cup’ and examining all sides of an issue, implementing and experimenting and then making my own conclusions. With my second knee injury, I didn’t ice one time, in fact, I did the opposite: heat, compression, movement and so forth.
I had a record recovery and my doc was shocked.
Last week, a good buddy texted me an article from a big publication about ‘How we should no longer ice an injury’. He said, ‘Look at that, you were right.’
In life, don’t be married to too many things, keep an open mind and be like water, test stuff out, teach it to learn it and continue to grow.
