1. The body knows how to heal itself naturally, the less you do to interfere with this, the better.
2. When you get injured, you should not confuse inflammation (good) with swelling (bad). You want to take care of/reduce the latter, not the former.
3. Most people ice to reduce swelling, but end up causing more, and delaying inflammation and healing.
4. Ice only causes temporary pain relief and delays the overall healing process.
5. Movement and muscle activation hasten healing by moving waste away from the injury via the body's lymphatic system.
I've used the advice and techniques in the book to help myself with several injuries, including a jammed finger from volleyball and a sprained ankle from soccer. Not icing, avoiding NSAIDs, and continuing to move while avoiding pain, have all helped me to recover more quickly and more fully.
I was very close to giving the book 4 stars since the advice is really good, it's just flooded with a bunch of personal stories that take too long to tell or are repetitive. Also, there were quite a few grammar and typographical errors that I can't believe made it into a widely published work.
