RICE injury management

RICE injury management

The RICE protocol is a common way to manage injuries in four steps:

1. **Rest**: Immediately stop the activity that caused the injury to prevent further damage.
2. **Ice**: Apply ice to the injured area to reduce swelling and pain. Ice should be applied for 15-20 minutes every 2-3 hours for the first 48 hours after injury.
3. **Compression**: Use a compression bandage to reduce swelling and provide support to the injured area.
4. **Elevation**: Elevate the injured area above the level of the heart to reduce swelling and promote drainage of excess fluid.

Following the RICE protocol can help alleviate pain, reduce swelling, and promote faster healing of acute injuries. However, it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional for severe injuries or if symptoms persist.
