The icing question came up today on the msn support group (Facebook). Yes, I have been told you can ice treated area if swelling is an issue...but make sure you don't go over 20 min. as too cold too long can cause tissue damage. Ice it for 15min. then let the area warm back up for maybe an hour before icing it again. Good luck
