I read and hear conflicting information about whether the inflammation may actually help with recovery-your body is inflammed intentionally, yes? To repair itself, yes? The inflammation can get in the way of circulation. I only take the ibruprofen if the pain might interfere with sleep. "Progressive relaxation" can be a help.
