Pain-Spasm Cycle

I was talking to someone recently in the midst of this cycle and I thought I should write a blog post about it.  What happens is this – when you injure something it’s painful.  This pain causes the surrounding muscles to spasm.  This spasm cause more pain, which cause more spasms, which cause more pain, which causes more spasms…………  It’s a vicious cycle and it has to be stopped!!  You have to interrupt this cycle and cold is the best way to do this, especially with an acute injury.   So ice is best.  Try it, see what happens.  I feel like I need to say more things….well here’s some Grumpy Cat pictures…
