Hi and welcome to HCM
Take a break from your normal activities to reduce repetitive strain, give the injury
time to heal and help prevent further damage. A day or two of rest may be all you need for a minor injury. More severe damage is likely to need a longer recovery time.
Ice reduces both pain and inflammation. A bag of frozen peas works well, don't use ice for longer than 20 minutes at a time because of the risk of damage to your nerves and skin.
Compression helps prevent fluid buildup in damaged tissues and maintains alignment and stability. Look for a compression bandage that's lightweight, breathable and self-adhesive. It should be tight enough without interfering with circulation.
Elevation help to reduce swelling, try propping your injured leg on pillows or sitting in a recliner.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and informative and I will be glad to answer any further query.
