These days, moms wear many hats; career woman, full-time mom, nurse, or cook; the list goes on and on. We all know that a mom’s responsibilities are usually overwhelming…on a daily basis. The last thing a mom needs is to get injured that would slow her down. Unfortunately, it’s so easy to get injured; simply stepping or walking the wrong way, lifting, or applying too much pressure on an object. The dangers could be anywhere!
Treatment and support will need to be as conservative as possible to not interfere with daily responsibilities. Moms can’t afford to slow down without compromising obligations. Missing work is often not an option and there is always things to get done when you have little ones.
What is a mom to do? For minor injuries, the expense and time it takes to visit a medical clinic is commonly not feasible.To assist with this issue, it’s important to know treatment options that can easily be implemented at home. The most common treatment for simple injuries is called the R.I.C.E. method, an acronym made just for healing injuries.
Taking a little time to rest is important to the healing process. This does not have to equal to resting all day, but awareness of your injury and is required to avoid further damage.
This is great for while you’re resting. Apply ice to the affected area. It’s good to wrap an ice pack in a towel, so it’s not too cold for your skin.
Support for the injured area is almost always necessary. The use of supports or braces can really make a positive impact on the healing process.
Be sure to elevate the affected area by propping it up on pillows or a stack of blankets. Use anything you may have that will be comfortable for you.
Along with the incorporation of the R.I.C.E. method, health support items are available for purchase to assist with alleviating pain and aid in healing. These can be used while performing your daily activities or even during exercise.
