Wow. It sure is. I am an ice-aholic. I do alternate ice and heat, but that may be even worse.

Might have to re-think my whole philosophy on this. I'm a big fan of Kelly Starett and everything else he has proposed has worked.

I found it extremely interesting, too. If I have some nagging joint or other issues I won't ice anymore, I just compress/mobilize and suck it up. In fact, I have only iced once since seeing that, and it was because my elbow hurt so my that it actually woke me up. In that case, I popped 5 extra strength tylenol and iced, just so I could sleep lol.

The cynic in me notices that Kelly sells compression bands and not ice...

The non cynic in me sees more relief from compression than ice...

EDIT (actual contribution):

Have you tried both heat and compression (with movement)? Depending on the area, and the severity of the "strain," rest with active compression/movement is all that seems to work for me.
I found that of interest too, given that after operations and such, compression stockings are used (I know it aids in return of blood to the heart and such but it's still due to inflammation after the op). We also know that the body self-splints injured areas, so to take away or attempt to reduce that splint-like force which is there for our own protection, at the end of the day, can't be a good thing either.

Some years ago, when I was a little kiddy, about 11y/o, I also came across a piece (in a book ) that stated that the West tended to use ice with bruising where the East tended to use warmth...the next time I ended up with a huge bruise, I did as they suggested and gently massaged the area whilst it was immersed in warm water and strangely it healed faster and felt a lot better the day after.

I automatically thought of Poundstones article where he talks about his his high rep training set to aid in recovery for his bicep injury.
Added a high rep set to my training for my arms, chest, back, and legs. Now this article has me thinking of the benefits of having an am/pm training split. One session is to focus on damage the other light recovery work.

I feel that contrast showers help to speed up recovery of minor muscle pulls.
