R.I.C.E.R.

September 15, 2008

At a neighborhood party last night, Annie slipped and twisted her ankle. Everyone rushed around trying to help her. She was embarrassed, she needed space to lie down and collect herself. So what is the best treatment in a situation like this ?  R.I.C.E.R – remember this: Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevate, Referral for medical evaluation.

Here is a helpful site with good explanations about what a sprain is and how to treat a sprain including resting initially then getting into motion so that scar tissue won’t form, and warning not to do anything that causes pain. Some other helpful modalities Annie used are magnets and far infrared products that helped take down the swelling and increased circulation.
