Sports injuries?

#1 Postby BrandonC » Sat Mar 11, 2006 8:52 pm

I hurt my ankle today during a wrestling match. It is quite swollen and bruised. Should I use heat or cold on the swelling?
Thanks alot!

I would elevate and ice. Then again, I can't remember all the stuff I used to know about cryotherapy, and all that stuff.

But I would elevate it, and ice it off and on during the day. Try to get the swelling to go down. Take it easy and get it rested.

I hope you get over it soon. I know injuries suck because they slow you down, and of course hurt a little too.

Was it a good wrestling match?

You are living my dream and it is great! I really enjoy the reports you send me about what you're up to.

Get well soon brother,

Rob

Congrats on the first actual match! That is really soon, after only being in school for a short while. You must be doing really well!

Haha, great you got to be the bad guy :)

I'd love to hear more so keep me/us updated.

Get well soon,
