    pinched nerve in traps area today

    Doing incline presses, I pinched a nerve in the traps area (L-side). It was the beginning of my workout and I immediately stopped.

    I have taken 800mg of Ibuprofen and will take it every 8 hours for inflammation.
    -
    I called chiro for decompression of cervical area, sched at 15:45.

    I'm wondering about ice or heat? Heat would loosen the tightness, I'm always tight there, but make inflammation worse. Ice would do the opposite.

    For something like that I would opt for moist heat and light stretching. Ice would make me tense up and probably give me a nasty headache to boot.
