GCJ     R.I.C.E.

Treatment with "RICE":

If your child or student becomes injured while playing a sport, remember R. I. C. E.:

  • Rest - reduce or eliminate using the injured body part for 48 hours. With leg injuries, stay off them completely.
  • Ice - Place ice on the injured area for 20 minutes sessions. Repeat 4 - 8 times per day. Use bagged ice, a cold pack, or a zip lock bag with crushed ice wrapped in a towel.
  • Compression - Compress an injured ankle, knee or wrist. Ask your doctor to recommend whether you should use elastic wraps, air casts or splints, special boots or bandages.
  • Elevation - Use a pillow to elevate the injured area above the heart level.

GCJ    What Does Research Say?

Caraffa, Cerulli and Projetti report that the three main noncontact injury mechanisms are planting and cutting, straight-knee stopping, and one-step landing with the knee hyperextended.
