Medical Treatment:
Do the following things (RICE therapy) for the first couple of days to help reduce swelling and support the injury:
  • Rest: Stop exercises or activities and try to avoid putting any weight on the injury
  • Ice: Use an ice pack or a bag of frozen vegetables wrapped in a tea towel to the injury for up to 20 minutes every 2 to 3 hours
  • Compression: Wrap a bandage around the injury to support it
  • Elevate: Keep it raised on a pillow as much as possible
