Andrew P. Han, The Washington Post Published 8:58 am PST, Tuesday, March 5, 2019 If you've ever needed to recover from an athletic injury, you've probably used ice to reduce soreness and swelling. For decades, doctors and athletic trainers have recommended RICE - rest, ice, compression and elevation - to reduce the pain and inflammation of sprained ankles. Inflammation has been viewed as the enemy of recovery. But what if that's not quite right? What if inflammation is an indication of recovery, and icing and other cold-based "cryotherapy" only delays it? Icing, it turns out, is like flossing: an ingrained practice that seems practical but is not strongly supported by clinical evidence. The oldest justifications for icing, dating to the 1970s, have melted under scientific scrutiny, some cryotherapy researchers say, and most scientific studies on icing haven't provided the solid results that would justify its popularity. This is true, they say, both for icing for daily … [Read more...] about Icing an athletic injury? That might only make things worse.

MADRID (Reuters) - Atletico Madrid twice came from behind to pull off a thrilling 3-2 win at home to Athletic Bilbao on Saturday, completing their comeback with a stoppage-time header from limping captain Diego Godin. Struggling Bilbao, who have held Real Madrid and Barcelona to draws this season but have not won since the opening day, took the lead in the 36th minute when Inaki Williams nudged the ball across the line after team mate Mikel San Jose had rattled the underside of the crossbar. Williams missed a glaring chance to double Athletic's lead early in the second half and was left ruing it when Thomas Partey sent a long range pile-driver into the net to level in the 61st minute. Williams quickly replied again to restore Athletic's lead, producing an ice-cool finish after racing on to a through ball by close friend Iker Muniain but Atletico midfielder Rodri levelled in the 80th minute by scoring his first goal for the club with a glancing header from a corner. Godin, who remained … [Read more...] about Godin shakes off injury to give Atletico comeback win over Bilbao
