webLoaded = "false" Loadclientside=No

The most common sports injuries are sprains and strains of muscles and tendons. Try a basic treatment with the mnemonic "R.I.C.E" for these injuries:



Stop the activity immediately. Continued stress can increase the damage done to the tissue.


Apply a Tensor™ Cold Compress.


Apply compression with a Tensor™ Bandage. Compression helps to reduce swelling.


Elevate the injured limb above the level of the heart to help drain excess fluid from the area.
