Think about that last ankle sprain or wrist sprain you suffered, what did you doย  immediately following the injury? Probably ice, add a little compression, and elevate that body part. Great idea, you did the right thing, but itโ€™s time for the therapy world to shift away from the acronym RICE and shift towards the POLICE Principle for injury recovery and tissue healing. Havenโ€™t heard this acronym yet? Want to learn how to speed up the recovery process? Want to learn why rice/rest doesn't work for injuries? Well, youโ€™ve come to the right place.
