Unhappy Injury Treatment

Hi All

I would like to ask, what type of treatment you are getting if let say you have a sprained ankle or arm?

If its bad enough, medical treatment. If not bad, time treatment....

I hyperextended my ankle early in the season and was sore throughout, but made it through with ibuprofen gel and a compression sleeve. If there was noticeable swelling, I'd have taken time off and considered seeing a doc but thankfully wasn't necessary.

It has been going on for quite some time...I thought of giving a time treatment and just apply some muscle rub but the pain is still not getting away. I am all for getting a medical treatment but I am sure the doctor will just give me another rubbing oil. I am considering an alternative treatment. Any suggestions ?

Find some supportive braces or sleeves. Try rubs with anti inflammatory like ibuprofen. Might try acupuncture for pain. But really you should go see a doctor if it has been a while and make sure there is no permanent tissue damage.

if the sprain is not better with over the counter treatments like voltaren gel/ibuprofen/whatever the pharmacist reccomends, support gear and around 2 weeks rest it is time to see a doctor. tbf if you have never had a specific injury before you should probably just go to the doctor first.

In reality the time to heel a bad sprain can easily be MONTHS, not weeks. Bones heel fastest, tendons/ligaments when stretched or slight tear heel very slow(when completely torn they have to be repaired), nerves heel very very slow....

I would rather break my bone than have a bad sprain. Look online for rehab exercises/stretches and do them religiously. A good over the counter gel is "arnicare". Rub it on thick and give the ankles a good massage. Dont take nsaids(naproxen sodium and similar), they hinder heeling of damaged tissue.

Yep, sprained my ankle really badly in HS playing basketball. Swelled up huge with black streaks running all the way up to my knee. It took forever to get over and that was even with the magical healing powers of a 16 year old body. I honestly can't say that I ever truly 100% recovered from it. To this day, that ankle has a tendency to roll on me, especially when I get tired like on the tail end of a long hike.

Doctors give out rubbing oil?!?

Physio and/or massage have been the most successful injury treatments for me. Sometimes time is needed, other times I think it's better to play through the pain. Depends on the severity and type of injury.

ice, ice and more ice - look up RICE therapy on google. Simple, but proven effective to help rehabilitate sprains/strains - you just need the discipline to apply the ice daily.

that and some quality mmj of course......helps with the discipline part above...
