Whether an injury is acute or chronic, you should never “play through the pain.” If you get hurt, you should always practice the RICE method first. RICE stands for “rest, ice, compression, and elevation.” This method has the ability to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and speed up the healing process, but remember that it may be a temporary solution to a deeper problem. If you develop a symptom that hinders your athletic performance, you should visit us immediately for an evaluation. Treatment will depend on the severity of the injury and may include a combination of physical therapy, strengthening exercises, and bracing.
