Hello........ Rest and avoid aggravating activities. Apply Ice or cold therapy to reduce pain and inflammation. Ice can be applied for 10 minutes every hour initially reducing as symptoms improve. Do not apply ice or cold packs directly to the skin as it may cause ice burns but wrap in a wet tea towel...
