Re: ICE ALERT!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Sue B. on 1/28/99
I was reading the article "The Plantar Fasciitis Monster" that was on the web page someone posted a couple of days ago. It was written by a physical therapist at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, Illinois, which treats orhopedic outpatients.

It stated that icing beyond 10 minutes makes the body respond to lowered temperatures by increasing blood flow to the area, resulting in increased inflammation. It also said that if you use ice massage, go no longer than 5 minutes. Can't vouch for the accuracy, but it is something to check with your doctor.
