Is Icing an Injury Really Bad for You? What the Science Says

Today’s article is an excellent review of the effects of cryotherapy, or ice, from my good friend Phil Page, PhD, PT, ATC, CSCS, FACSM.  Man, icing an injury sure has taken some heat (see what I did there…) lately on the internet.  There is a HUGE anti-ice movement.  I’m always amazed at how polarizing social media can be, with people screaming their black or white opinion, when in reality much of what we do is in the grey.  I get questions all the time about wether or not icing is good or bad for you, with many people quick to jump to the conclusion that we should not be icing.  Well, let’s find out what the research actually says.  Phil’s the Director of Research & Education with Performance Health, and one of the best at analyzing the research.

This Week’s Stuff You Should Read From Around the Web

Changing Gymnastics Culture: It’s Time to Have Some Really Hard Conversations

My man Dave Tilley wants to have a hard conversation about gymnastics culture.  Dave has a brand new book available, and because he wants to help the sport so bad, it’s absolutely free.  I talk to Dave about this almost daily and I’m not sure anyone is more passionate about changing the sport.  But for Dave it’s more than that.  He actually articulated the changes the he proposes, heck that need to happen, so well that I’m going to be shocked if this book doesn’t have a huge impact.  Even if you aren’t into gymnastics, this book can be applied to many other sports as well.
