The RICE Principle for Soft Tissue Injury

Strains and sprains can be very painful, however the pain doesn’t always exhibit up immediately following an injury. It is common for 1st or 2nd degree injuries to become more painful the day following when inflammation sets in and the area becomes stiff. Whether you feel immediate pain or not, the following steps should be taken to decrease the amount of pain and inflammation that will occur in the first 72 hours of injury. This will also aid to limit the amount of scar tissue build up during the second stage of the healing action.
