I enjoy CrossFit and Olympic Weight Lifting. I spend other spare time cooking, gardening and traveling.
Dr. Lisa Pomranky Says . . .
When you have an acute injury, ice and elevate the body part within the first 72 hours to help with swelling. Icing for 15 to 20 minutes every few hours is recommended. Using heat during this time could increase the swelling from injury.
