Remove Ice from Rice: The application of ice over too long a time can actually short circuit healing. Especially when the injured tissues are connective in nature.(tendons, ligaments, fascia) .These tissues have a diminished blood supply naturally. The heat will mimic what your tissue normally does when injured, heat up. An increased blood flow will help heal the tissue. Some injuries just seem to take longer to heal,
