R.I.C.E.

When a condition ends in "itis," inflammation is the culprit. If a joint is overused, it might develp tendonitis. If a runner's foot muscles and fascia are painful, it might be labled plantar fasciitis. Athletes are often reluctant to scale back training, to use the affected area less so that inflammation can subside. Using the R.I.C.E. technique at the first sign of inflammation can help reduce symptoms before they can become debilitating. 

Rest the affected muscles and/or joints,

Ice the area 10 minutes every hour,

Compress with a bandage, or with massage if the injury is not acute (severe and recent), and

if possible, Elevate it above your heart until swelling subsides.
