If you injure yourself during a game or practice, take a break and rest the injured area. R.I.C.E. (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) is an effective strategy to use following an injury. Make sure to use a cloth in between your skin and any ice application to avoid skin damage. Only ice the area for 10-15 minutes at a time. If the pain persists after 1-2 days, book an appointment with your healthcare provider. For proper treatment, it’s important to get a proper diagnosis and assessment of the affected area.
