Re: Cheekbone Injury
when in doubt, always stick to cold, as cold will never cause further damage!
The point of putting cold, is to reduce the swelling, and numbs to area, thus reducing the pain.
Heat would activate your blood flow, and possibily cause a re-swelling of the area.
Heat is sually good to use on muscles+ligament problems, after the initial phase of healing is done, as it rushes more blood to the area wich helps repair the damage done, and also helps loosen the said muscles and ligaments.
but i dont see any real use for bone really:|
