Posts for tag: RICE Method

Ankle InjuryFigure skater Yuna Kim will be on the sidelines for approximately 6 weeks after injuring a metatarsal in her right foot, according to Eurosport. “During training Yuna felt a lot of pain in her right foot,” a Korean Skating Union official said.

“The diagnosis she received is that she would need around six weeks to recover and will also require physio after she returns.” The recovery time required will potentially cause 23 year old Kim to miss both grand prix assignments, reports KpopStarz. With rival Miki Ando returning after missing the last two seasons, Kim’s dominance on the ice may be short.

Facing such an injury can be daunting, but with proper care returning to sports and activities is not impossible. Receiving treatment from a podiatrist such as Dr. Nicholas Crismali of Crismali Foot & Ankle help you manage your injury as well as provide solutions for how to get back into the sports you enjoy.

Getting Back into Sports after Foot and Ankle Injuries

Sprained ankles are a frustrating and painful ordeal many athletes go through. Recovery from a sprained ankle usually involves the RICE method. This includes:

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation

In addition, athletes should consider wearing an ankle brace in order to keep the ankle stabilized and alleviate any pain as it heals.

Stress fractures that occur in the foot and ankle come in two types. This includes stable and displaced. Stable stress fractures do not consist of any shifting in bone alignment while displaced stress fractures involve bone ends that do not line up.
