Heat / Ice Therapy

Heat/Ice Therapy, DeFalco Family Chiropractic, Auburn, MAA frequently asked question that we hear at DeFalco Family Chiropractic is: ice or heat?  If you are not sure what to use to treat your injury or pain, always use ice as your chosen form of therapy.  Usually, ice therapy is necessary to reduce pain and swelling during the first 72 hours after an injury.  After 72 hours, you can switch to heat therapy to increase circulation and accelerate wound healing or loosen up tight musculature.

DeFalco Family Chiropractic utilizes both ice therapy and heat therapy as necessary to help manage symptoms and decrease healing time.
