Bath Osteopath Clinic

If you suffer an injury, you should:

 

 

 

Follow the RICE procedure.
R—Rest:
When injured, STOP! Never try to work or exercise through the pain. This could cause further damage.
I—Ice:
This will reduce local swelling. Apply to the injured site for a period of 10-15 minutes every hour. Make sure the ice is wrapped in a cloth to reduce the chance of frost bite. Use cold water if ice is not available.
If the injury is to an arm or leg
C—Compression:
This reduces the swelling. Apply a crepe bandage or tubigrip to the area.
E—Elevation:
This aids drainage away from the injured area. Elevate
