Try An Ice Bath For Sore Muscles

We're always predisposed toward taking a "hot" bath to ease the pain of sore muscles.

However, an "ice" bath may be the better source of treatment, according to Marty Jaramillo, CEO of the I.C.E Sports Health Center.

Sure, a hot bath always feels good, but read Jaramillo's comments from He relates why the ice treatment is more productive and how to go about taking an effective ice bath.

Make sure to use this approach with your children when they return home from games or practices complaining of muscle soreness. Trust my experience - they are intrigued by the novelty of an "ice bath".

Sore muscles? Maybe reach for the ice instead of the heat next time.
