Should I put my foot in ice water or put it in hot water first?
I hurt it today
Ice will help swelling go down but use a ice pack instead of just putting your foot in a bucket
Ice first, heat later.
You need to use the ice packs to relieve the pain and swelling and take any medication. Put a towel or a sheet between the skin and the ice. Leave the ice on for 15 minutes and then remove it for 15 minutes.
ice water..will reduce any swelling..
Just remember the acronym RICE: rest, ice, compression and elevation
