It’s important to stop playing the sport immediately. Continuing to play may result in a more severe situation, especially with the high amount of contact involved. Ice the injured area for 10-15 minutes at a time. And make sure to place a cloth in between your skin and the ice. Further, strengthening and stretching exercise may be a key part of your treatment. These exercises can help strengthen weak areas that may have contributed to your injury and pain. Book an appointment with your doctor or healthcare provider to determine the proper course of treatment for you and your injury.
