How to Use Ice in the Treatment of Sports Injuries

Tell an injured skater to try icing, and you're liable to get the cold shoulder. "I don't like to ice," they often say. "It's cold and uncomfortable."

True enough. But it's also one of the best ways to treat many common sports injuries. Cold therapy (also known as cryotherapy) reduces inflammation and pain and can speed up the healing process. On top of that, it's easy and cheap.

When To Ice

Icing is effective in the treatment of both acute and chronic soft-tissue injuries, including bruises, sprains and pulled (or just sore) muscles. In fact, it's good for just about any injury that involves inflammation.

Signs of inflammation include redness, pain and warmth. But these are also symptoms of infection. So if you have these symptoms and haven't experienced some kind of trauma, consult a doctor immediately.

The Skating Hangover

By Nadine Currie Jackson
 

Getting a massage

One good way to treat Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness is with massage.

After a hard skate do you sometimes feel like the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz? Hardly able to move? Your muscles tight and screaming? You've got a skating hangover — also known as Delayed Muscle Onset Soreness, or DOMS.

What's going on?

When you push yourself hard in anything physical, the exertion rips microscopic tears in the muscles involved. This typically happens when you start a new exercise routine or push your muscles beyond what they are used to. The result is pain, usually low-grade, dull and achy, which temporarily limits your range of motion and may cause weakness.

What to do about DOMS?

This part is easy. Simply give your muscles enough time to heal and rebuild. Full recovery usually takes 24 to 48 hours. But in my experience, the healthier the person, the quicker they recover.

When Can I Start Skating Again After a Knee Injury

July 8, 2009

How Do I Recover From a Knee Injury?

QHello, Bill: Years ago, I hurt my left knee skiing. The doctor told me to work it off. So I continued using it, though I could feel that it wasn't quite right. Finally last June, something popped in my knee, causing intense pain. I got an MRI and was given two choices: live with it or have it repaired arthroscopically. I tried living with it, but every time I pushed hard while skating, it would ache for a week. So I decided to have it "scoped." My question is how long will I have to recuperate before I can safely return to skating? Thank you, Norm, British Columbia

Hi, Norm: First off, take the advice of qualified medical people, preferably with specialties in sports medicine. These days, there are sports-medicine specialists all over the world.

We are lucky in Switzerland. W...
