There are many benefits to icing your injuries. Icing is a proven way to decrease inflammation and swelling, and reduce pain. In this video, I will show you how to use a Dixie cup to give yourself an ice massage.

Using a Dixie cup is a great way to ice any part of the body. It works particularly well for tennis elbow and all tendinitis injuries.

Advantages to using a Dixie cup filled with frozen water when icing your tennis elbow:

  • You can apply pressure directly on the affected area while holding the Dixie cup without freezing your fingers or hands.
  • You can directly massage the injury and break up the swelling and inflammation.
  • It’s more effective than just using an ice pack or wrap.
  • It’s inexpensive and easy to do.

It’s important; however; not to ice for too long to avoid skin frost. Start out with 5 to 10 minutes and see how that feels.  In addition, for maximum result, it’s best to ice right after you play tennis.
