Today’s Healthy Tip of the Week is about how to quickly treat swelling and reduce pain. Swelling on any part of the body can give pain and discomfort.
Join us this week to learn more about one of the best immediate remedies.
Healthy Tips of the Week:
- In the first 48 hours of swelling, it is best to apply ice to the inflamed area.
- Ice reduces the amount of blood flow to the affected area resulting in reduced pain and swelling.
- Ice Therapy is done properly by putting ice on for 10 to 20 minutes at a maximum, then taking it off for 40 minutes up to 3 or 4 times a day.
- If the pain or swelling persists after 48 hours, consult a healthcare practitioner for further evaluation.
