Treatment of Soft Tissue Injuries
The RICE principle is used for a typical soft tissue injury.
REST - Rest and elevation of the injured part will improve recovery time.
ICE - Place a towel over the area to be iced and then place an ice pack over the area.
COMPRESSION - Apply a bandage to the area, making sure that tension is sustained while applying the bandage. If numbness or discolouration should occur at the extremities, re-apply the bandage, reducing the tension.
ELEVATION - Elevate the area above heart level.
If in doubt refer to a Biokineticist or Doctor for a diagnosis and management.
