Absolutely, for the first few months after injury I was icing multiple times a day, and I still keep ice packs in the freezer at the ready in case I need them. I can't imagine putting heat on my back. Both a chiropractor and physio told me ice, not heat. I always thought this was because it helps reduce inflammation. But I guess heat is good for like tight muslces/muscle spasms? I never really felt like I got spams, just sore back and ice always seemed to help soothe it
