True that, but wouldn't that go for ice as well as heat? Also, if you are making something heal faster but will have issues with it later on, then maybe it's not the most efficacious treatment... so the question is whether or not ice is what causes problems (arthritis, etc.) in the area later on or not... and I think that would be next to impossible to determine.
