The use of ice in the management of an acute injury remains a controversial topic, within musculoskeletal practice. Installed in us from an early age—when a bag of frozen peas was used in primary school after falling in the playground—ice application has become a cornerstone of traditional practice. However, what does the science say about the role of ice application in acute injury management? Is there a role for ice application in rehabilitation?

This talk will discuss the original premise of ice application, and critically consider if the evidence supports its use today.
