What should you do when you sprain your ankle during exercise? Keep it in your mind: R.I.C.E. When you get acute injury, don’t forget using R.I.C.E. – “Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation.” That is immediately rest the area, apply ice, compression and elevation. Don’t underestimate the power of R.I.C.E. because acute injury comes with inflammation – redness, swelling, heat and pain. R.I.C.E. is a good way of anti-inflammation at the beginning of acute injury. Any stretch, therapeutic exercise or applying heat will let your condition get worse. Receiving good acupuncture treatments as soon as possible, you will find the amazing effect of it.
