Do I Use Ice or Heat?

Definition of inflammation- Derived from the term inflammare: To set on fire!

The essential process, regardless of the causative agent, is characterized by local heat, swelling, redness and pain.-New Gould Medical Dictionary

Inflammation occurs to stop the joint and surrounding tissue from moving. The problem is that we need to move and every time we move more inflammation is produced. Don't add fuel to the fire! Ice is always the best choice as it provides a cooling affect especially for acute(new) or flared up chronic(old) injuries.
