    I was using this site to help with my PD assessment (your site will be on my bibliography)

    your site says “Do not apply for long periods. Apply cold for approximately 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off.”

    but in class we learnt that it was 20 minutes on then 1 hour off.

    which one is correct?
