Aid rehabilitation with injury therapy
When it comes to injury recovery, there are some essential steps that you should follow, which are Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. The ‘R.I.C.E’ formula can help to speed up your recovery, ease pain, and alleviate swelling. Here at Physiosupplies, you’ll find equipment to help you ice and compress the injury.
Our compression cuffs can be easily adjusted to suit your body, and many come with removable ice packs so that you can keep the injury cool and prevent further swelling. If you feel that you need additional cold treatment or you want instant relief after an injury, our ice packs are available in both reusable and instant cooling, so you can get the relief you need when you need it the most.
You want your injury treatment to be with you quickly, especially if you have just suffered from a significant injury. At Physiosupplies, we offer a variety of delivery options, including next working day delivery to any address on the Irish mainland. Simply choose this option at checkout and you’ll get your items the very next working day!
What is the point of R.I.C.E?
‘R.I.C.E’ stands for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation, and describes the process you should follow when recovering from an injury. This treatment is especially important within the first 48-hours, as this is when it is the most effective. It will help to protect the injured area and reduce swelling.
How do you treat an injury at home?
Treating an injury at home starts with resting the injured area of the body. This will help to prevent further injuries and allow you to assess in greater detail. Ice is also vital to reduce swelling. You may opt to follow the ‘R.I.C.E’ method of Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation.
What are the different types of injuries?
According to experts, most athletic injuries will fall into one of three categories, which are acute, overuse, and chronic. Acute often refers to injuries such as fractures, sprains, and strains. Overuse is used when speaking of tennis elbow, runners’ knee, swimmers’ shoulder. Chronic injuries will typically last for three months or more.
What does pain relief cream do?
Pain relief cream can help to ease the pain you feel following an injury. Often designed with anti-inflammatories in them, they create a soothing sensation and are quickly absorbed into the skin to create effective pain relief.
How long should you rest an injury?
The first 24 to 48-hours after an injury are the most important, and this is when you should really be resting the area. This will not only help to reduce swelling, but it prevents further injury.
