You can’t afford to NOT take care of a muscle injury with this easy treatment!

Muscle cramps and spasms are sustained contractions in the muscle.  They can be just uncomfortable or extremely painful! And they can make you prone to more serious injury!

Gentle stretching of the affected and surrounding muscle groups can bring relief.  Staying well hydrated and in good physical condition can help prevent them.

PRICE can help ensure that muscle cramps, spasms and more serious injuries are reduced or heal quickly without complications.

•    Protection. Protect small injuries using bandages, elastic wraps, or simple splints.
•    Rest. Injured tissue requires time to heal. You may have to give up running, while your calf or ankle are inflamed, but you
can still swim or do upper body work.
•    Ice. Ice is the best anti-inflammatory to reduce both swelling and pain – and is drug-free!  Apply an ice pack for 15 – 20
minutes after an injury. Repeat application every hour for the first four hours, and then four times a day for the next two or
three days.
•    Compression. Pressure can also help reduce swelling and inflammation. In most cases, an elastic bandage will do the trick.
•    Elevation. Elevate the injured area to drain fluids away from injured tissue to help reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain.
