Avoid prolonged relaxation
The first method is to avoid lying down for prolonged periods, studies show that this can be more detrimental to your health than good for it. Although it has been said in the past that lying down and resting is good for your back, if you consult with your general practitioner he/she will tell you to avoid lying down for hours on end, relax is good, but only to a certain extent.
Use an ice pack
The classic for any injury is the ice pack, apply an ice pack or if you don’t have one accessible, try a bag of frozen garden peas wrapped in a dishcloth. Apply directly to the injury as soon as possible, this will certainly help. The cold will bring down inflation and soothe the pain. Try to keep the ice pack or frozen peas on the injured area for about twenty minutes, relieve for thirty minutes and then place on the injured area for a further twenty minutes. Repeat until relieved.
Have a hot bath
The only problem with the ice pack, is that generally after about twenty four hours, the pain and inflammation can not be helped with the ice pack, if this is the case, the next step for you is to take a hot bath. Heat should help increase the elasticity of the muscles in he surrounding area of the injury. Though this is not advised for pregnant women, if pregnant avoid body temperature rising to above 37 degrees (Celsius) as this can harm your baby. If not, then enjoy a nice soak in hot water for about twenty minutes.
Enjoy the pain relief hopefully, and come back in future for help in other areas!
