Acute Care of Sprain and Strain Injuries

1. Control Swelling With RICE Therapy

  • Rest the sprained or strained area.
  • Ice every 2 hours for 20 minutes.    (After 48 hours,  Ice for pain, heat for spasms every 2 hours for 20 minutes)
  • Compress by wrapping an elastic (Ace) bandage around the joint or limb, or if needed, a lumbar brace or cervical collar for the spine.
  • Elevate the extremity that is injured above the level of the heart.

2. See Your Health Care Provider

Most severe strains and sprains should be evaluated by a health care provider. Consult a health care provider as soon as possible if there are symptoms of a possible broken bone:

  • There is a "popping" sound with the injury.
  • The person can't move the injured joint or limb.
  • The limb buckles when the injured joint is used.
  • There is numbness or tingling down your arm or leg.
  • There is significant swelling, pain, fever, or open cuts.

3. Follow Up

  • Continue RICE for 24 to 48 hours, or until the person sees a health care provider.  The health care provider may want to do X-rays or an MRI to diagnose other than a simple sprain or strain to rule out a broken bone or other pathology.
  • In severe cases, go immediatly to the emergency room or urgent care center.
  • All physical activity to tolerance. 
  • Avoid all activities that involve prolonged sitting, standing, or walking.
