For a pinched nerve in my back should I use ice or heat?
You can use both, alternate them, however I believe you'd benefit more from heat.
you should use ice if that doesnt help u should go to a doctor, how do i know? i'm a nurse
I recommend putting ice on your back for 5 minutes and heat on your back for the next 5 minutes. Rotate.
Nurse Owens is correctnever use icy hot. or any balmfollowed by ice or heat
Put something cold on it for 20mins. Then put something hot on it for 20mins. That's what I do
