If an injury occurs during play, take a break. Assess the injury. If the pain continues, seek out immediate medical attention. The R.I.C.E. (Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate) method can further be utilized after the onset of injury. Make sure to only ice for 15-20 minutes at a time – leaving 45 minutes in between applications. It’s also important to place a cloth in between the ice and your skin to prevent skin damage.
If required, your doctor may recommend massage, osteopathy, sport taping, or acupuncture as part of your treatment plan.
