If You Are In Pain

If you are in pain you should apply an ice pack to the area affected, this will decrease any swelling in that area and also help to relieve the pain.

Cold Therapy

The following steps should be followed :
Apply an ice pack or a packet of frozen peas wrapped in a damp tea towel (in order to protect the skin) around the troubled area.
Leave the ice pack in place for ten minutes then remove for ten minutes to allow the area to warm up naturally.
Patients suffering acute pain should repeat this process three times an hour for two hours.  Afterwards patients may apply the ice pack once every two hours (for ten minutes only).
Only very rarely will cold therapy aggravate the pain.  If this does occur or the pain continues it is recommended that you cease cold therapy and immediately consult your chiropractor.
