Remember that if you do get hurt while playing a sport, riding your bike, swimming or taking a run, there are several steps you can take to reduce your pain and minimize your risk of further injury. The acronym to keep in mind is “RICE,” which stands for “rest,” “ice,” “compression” and “elevation.”  Medications to reduce pain and swelling are also a good idea. Our patients should not hesitate to call our office with questions about these methods and to set up an evaluation of their injury as soon as possible.
