Heat or ice on injury?

Cold then heat

Sports_medicine
Most sports medicine experts recommend cold first, because it decreases swelling and pain. Then later, heat frequently provides more relief. However, you are the ultimate judge: use the one that works best for you.

Dr. Vasu K. Brown answered:

Is reperfusion injury?

Reperfusion injury

Blood
Reperfusion injury refers to tissue damage caused when blood supply returns to the tissue after a period of ischemia or lack of oxygen. The absence of oxygen and nutrients from blood during the ischemic period creates a condition in which the restoration of circulation results in leaking from blood vessel the substances that produce damage to tissue - the degraded enzymes create further damage

Tail bone pain no injury?

Coccydynia

Coccydynia refers to pain in the region of the coccyx. Most cases are associated with abnormal mobility of the coccyx which may trigger a chronic inflammatory process leading to degeneration of this structure. Nonsurgical management remains the gold standard treatment for coccydynia, consisting of decreased sitting, seat cushioning, coccygeal massage, stretching, local injection of steroids.
