In the first 72 hours following injuring your forearms you can use the RICE regime, which is used to control inflammation and a form of pain relief.
R - Rest
I – Ice
C - Compression
E – Elevation
Rest from aggravating activity.
You should use ICE in the first 72 hours to control the inflammation.
You should apply the ICE for 15 to 20 minutes at a time.
Ice should not be applied directly to the skin, but through a towel or cloth, you can use a bag of frozen vegetables if you don't have any ICE on hand.
Compression can be achieved with an elastic bandage. which is a great tool to use.
Elevation is used to help swelling, another great tip.Once it settles down, book in for a massage.
