The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy recommends following PRICE guidelines:
Protection, Rest/optimal loading, Ice, Compression, and Elevation.
Protection: taping, supports/splints, modifying activity/relative rest
Rest/Optimal loading: gradually loading the tissues in a gentle manner relative to the state of injury and repair. This is best done under the guidance of a physiotherapist.
Ice: cold compress, cold water immersion in the first 24-48 hours of healing.
Compression: strapping, compression garments when appropriate e.g. acute joint swelling.
Elevation: placing the injured part/limb higher than the level of the heart.
