How To Heal Faster From An Injury

How To Heal Faster From An Injury

Nobody likes to take a timeout from the game due to a sports injury. The experts at CarePro have some tips to help you recover faster, so you can get back to playing your heart out. 

R. I. C. E.

The standard motto of healing is R.I.C.E. It’s easy to remember and really aids in recovery. 

  • Rest - When you feel abnormal pain, the first thing you should do is to rest the injured area to avoid further damage. 
  • Ice - Deep injuries like sprains or bruises can’t be treated topically. Ice helps with swelling. You will want to do it in increments. Ten to thirty minutes every two to three hours is ideal. Our cold pack is perfect for this. It aids in swelling but doesn’t require being wrapped in a towel. 
  • Compression - Immediately and up to forty-eight hours following the injury, place pressure on the injured area to help with swelling. 
  • Elevation - Elevation also helps with swelling. If it’s a lower body injury, you’ll want to keep the ankle above the waist. Our contour pillow is comfortable and will be just what you need. 

A Healing Diet

When you’re recovering from an injury, you will want to give your body everything it needs to heal you quickly. Foods that promote healing include proteins and dark leafy greens. 

Keep Moisturized

An external injury like a scrape may need gauze. If you have an external injury, it’s going to be important to keep it moisturized in order for it to heal itself quickly. When the injured area is dry, it disrupts healing and makes it harder for the tissue to rebind. 


It can be tempting to not move the injured area at all. However, it’s important to stay loose and keep the muscles moving for the new tissue that’s growing to be connected to healthy muscles. Keep your body and the new tissue ready to get moving together again. Massagers can aid in keeping the muscles loose and may provide some relief.
