When pain occurs, it’s important to rest. If the pain continues, seeking out proper medical attention is encouraged. An assessment conducted by a qualified healthcare professional can help determine the proper course of treatment. At the initial onset of injury, the R.I.C.E. (Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate) should be used to alleviate pain and swelling. Further, rehabilitation exercises are often prescribed by healthcare providers in order to increase strength, flexibility, and function in the affected area.
