R. I. C. E. What Does That Really Spell?

Rest (keeping movement at a minimum)
Ice (cool it off with an ice pack)
Compression (apply an ace bandage to keep the swelling down)
Elevation (allow gravity to work for you- keep blood from pooling in an already inflamed area)

This is a great acronym to keep in mind after any kind of sprain or strain. It will assist in many ways by keeping any tissue or joint damage to a minimum. In the end it really spells – happier muscle and connective tissue!
