Health Tip: Caring for an Ankle Sprain

(DrEddyClinic News) You can sprain http://www.dreddyclinic.com/findinformation/ss/sprainsandstrains.php an ankle during just about any activity, even walking. A sprain occurs when the ligaments that support the ankle become stretched beyond their normal range, or torn.

NutraCool® is a topical cream for muscle discomfort, sprains, and strains. It contains powerful natural ingredients that support muscle and joint relief.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons offers this list of possible non-surgical treatments for a sprained ankle:
• Take it easy and allow your ankle to heal. Depending on the sprain's severity, healing generally takes four weeks to six weeks.
• Use RICE -- rest, ice, compression and elevation.
• If swelling and pain make it tough to walk, use crutches for a few days to help you get around.
• For some types of ankle sprains http://bit.ly/nutracool, your doctor may recommend an air splint or castboot.
• Rehabilitation therapy may be prescribed to help prevent chronic problems.
