Beat the aches and pains of sprains and strains. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Control swelling and pain

    Use the R.I.C.E treatment: Rest the body part, Ice it every hour, Compress it with elastic bandages, tape, or a brace, and Elevate it above your heart

  • Control inflammation with enzyme preparations

    Take 4 to 8 tablets a day of proteolytic enzymes containing trypsin, chymotrypsin, and/or bromelain for inflammation

  • Take a multivitamin

    Extra vitamins and minerals during recovery can help insure against deficiencies that slow the healing process

  • Get help for serious injuries

    Also, see a doctor if you cannot move or put weight on the body part, if the part looks crooked, if pain or tenderness is severe, if there is numbness or redness in the area, or if you have any other concerns about your injury
