Rest and ice for chronic pain

RICE is outdated for acute injuries, and even for chronic pain rest and ice is a poor approach to support healing.

There are much better approaches for reducing pain and inflammation with chronic pain. Here are just a few:

// grounding barefoot to the earth for 30 minutes per day

// gentle movement through the area of pain, paired with light touching/self massage of the area to improve lymphatic flow

// staying hydrated – dehydrated tissues are often more painful than hydrated tissues

// alternating heat and ice (3 minutes heat, 1 minute ice) to help improve blood flow to the area
