Experimental Evidence

Since I picked up the elastic that holds my ice pack to my shoulder, I’ve been keeping the shoulder pretty well iced when I’m at home. Two nights ago, though, I forgot to put the blue ice in the freezer, so last evening I didn’t have a cold pack to apply to my shoulder. I have thereby derived one data point’s worth of evidence that icing my shoulder does indeed help it feel better; or, more to the point, not icing it seems to presage achiness.

  1. Right! That slipped my mind, and I always have frozen veggies around — next time I’ll use the peas.
