  • Heat vs Ice

    On a thread on this board recently someone started a discussion about the benefits of ice baths.

    In one of the responses, one reply said that warmth contracted the muscles, while ice relaxed them.

    I've found the opposite. When I sprained my ankle, I found ice made the pain and tightness worse. It was the same when I injured my achilles. A physio told me to put ice on it and the pain became worse,but using heat reduced it.

    So which is best for a sports injury, ice or heat? and does warmth contract the muscles? I've always thought it relaxes them.
