Physiotherapy Injury Management Tips
Tips for after injury
If you have sustained a soft tissue injury, while playing sports or otherwise, we recommend you use the RICE method – Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation to aid your recovery. Read on to find out more about Physiotherapy injury management tips:
- Rest is a key component to the body’s healing process, without it the injured area could become inflamed, more painful, or you could risk further injury
- Ice reduces inflammation and pain. To protect your skin we recommend that the ice be placed within a towel before wrapping around the injured area
- Compression helps reduce swelling and pain
- Elevation also helps reduce swelling by reducing blood flow to the affected area
Once you’ve followed RICE, as above, please give us a call or visit our website and find out how Physiotherapy can help you.
