When a joint becomes injured, there is often a period of swelling and inflammation over several days that can hamper normal actions. When this happens, many people turn to the โ€œR.I.C.E.โ€ method to decrease the amount of time theyโ€™ll be out of the game โ€“ or out of work:

๐‘ = rest
Some injuries just cannot be "played on" or "worked out" with activities. When a joint is swollen and painful, the best advice is to take it easy and listen to the symptoms.

๐ˆ = ice
Inflammation in a swollen can be uncomfortable. Throw an ice bag (bags of frozen pees work great too) on to slow down the process of inflammation and hasten your recovery โ€“ just make sure you donโ€™t place it directly on the skin. Alternating 20 minutes on, then 20 minutes off, works well.

๐‚ = compression
Compression, or wrapping the injured or sore area with an elastic bandage (such as an Ace wrap), will help decrease swelling. Just don't wrap it too tightly, because this can cause more swelling below the affected area.

๐„ = elevation
By elevating the joint to the level of or above the heart, the accumulated fluid can head back to the body easily. Elevate the body part anytime you are sitting or lying down to help minimize the swelling and keep things moving.

If you suffer a minor injury, you can't go wrong with starting to treat it with RICE. However, it is important to always consult a physician if the pain is severe, if the swelling continues to worsen, or if numbness and tingling accompany the sprain.

โ€œSince tearing something in my shoulder, every time I come to the office, my wait times are minimal; the entire staff is cordial and accommodating. It is just an overall great experience. This was my second surgery with Dr. Griffith, and he is so very professional and knowledgeable, and very skilled. And my PA, Ms. Lisa Siddall is very kind, very professional, very pleasant, and I never feel rushed concerning my questions or concerns. I always feel better when I leave the office. I would recommend this office for any orthopedic issues one may have!โ€

At Arthritis & Sports, each of our providers are committed to continual, quality, and exceptional care. From our physicians and medical team, to our front desk and physical therapists, we have the best team in the area, providing quality care from start to finish!

โ€œI was admitted for Physical Therapy (5 weeks, 2x/week) for a pinched nerve in my neck. The PAIN was excruciating! ALEX was my PT person, along with a few extra sessions with AISCHA. After many weeks of pain, I noticed an almost immediate improvement, which resulted in TOTAL relief of pain towards the end of the intended program. ALEX was the expert and knew exactly what ailed me, and what to do about it. Well satisfied! Highly recommend this facility!โ€
