A horrible read with need to know information.
on July 13, 2014
While I won't tell people that they should never ice. Reading this book has definitely convinced me that I am at least safe not icing and probably better off not icing, which I will probably now never do. I think clearly the alternative methods prescribed by Reinl would be a better method of sports therapy either way. I would recommend all trainers and athletes read this book as I do believe it does present better methods of sports therapy. That being said this was a hard book to actually read. Gary Reinl is one of the most braggadocios, preachy authors I have ever encountered. Half way through the book I was tempted to go take an ice bath just to spite him. There were a lot, and I mean A LOT, of repetitive rants in this book that I had to skip over to get to the content. All that being said the actual content in this book is first rate and hard to argue with. I would encourage you to read this book and either stomach or skip over all the ranting and bragging that Reinl does, because the information is worth knowing.
