Seriously, ice is super important if you have just suffered an injury because the more quickly you apply an ice pack after an injury – hopefully within the first 5 minutes – the less overall tissue injury will occur.
Don’t get me wrong, if you tear your ACL and apply ice, it doesn’t mean that your ACL isn’t still torn. It just means that the ice application will limit the effects tissue damage in the tissues surrounding the ACL.
For example, if you don’t apply ice then you will have a lot more swelling and inflammation. That extra fluid will create pressure on the other tissues in the knee and possibly damage them. Applying ice helps to keep swelling and inflammation under control so that other tissues are as negatively impacted.
