What to do for acute injury? The Haven Spa Boquete

What to do for acute injury?

Let me just clarify  – Acute injury is something has  just happened – today or yesterday

For acute injury remember this

If you have just injured yourself (acute) like a strain from doing sport or exercising etc, DO NOT use heat on the injury for the first 24 to 48 hours, or take any heating herbs and spices (no chilli or ginger) and no heating creams you usually use on aching muscles or joints).

The R.I.C.E method must be used.

R – Rest

I – Ice for 5 – 10 minutes three times a day

C – Compress using a bandage, but not too tight.

E – Elevate the injury, above the heart if possible

DO NOT H.A.R.M for the first 24 to 48 hours

H – no Heat

A – no Alcohol

R – no Running or no walking or using the injured part

M – no Massage that is vigorous  or deep
