In brief: At times

If the pain is acute you would want to use ice, if not then moist heat would be best.
About 15 minutes is a good time limit for either ice or hat.

In brief: Sometimes

When not in use moist heat for about 15 minutes an hour works well.
After use ice, like with a bag of frozen corn for 15 minutes really works wonders.
