Body stretching Proper care

Proper icing and stretching will help you avoid multiple visits to the chiropractor. Doctors at Mahle Chiropractor will discuss proper stretching, icing, and heating treatments needed for your individual injury. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact one of our doctors.

Make sure you are icing for the right amount of time

Ice should always be wrapped in about one layer of towel and never placed directly on the skin. Icing should be done once per hour at least 3-5 times per day.

  • Neck - 5-10 minutes

  • Middle back - 10-15 minutes

  • Lower back - 15-20 minutes

  • All other joints, including: elbow, shoulder, knees, etc. - 15-20 minutes

 

* Applying heat my help for muscle spasms in some cases. Quick tip: a hot shower is always better than a heating pack when heat is needed
