Neck and shoulder pain seem to be by-products of modern life. How many times have you come home from work with a stiff neck, aching shoulders or both? Regardless of what you do all day – bending over a keyboard, talking on the phone, standing on your feet, driving or carrying kids around – the unnatural postures and repetitive motions your body has to endure take their toll.

Treating and Recovering from Achilles Injury

The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body and one of the more difficult injuries to treat in a runner.

R.I.C.E. – Rest, Ice, Compression, And Elevation Procedure Explained

One of the most used treatments to assist with a sprain or a strain is the “RICE” method. As always, consult a doctor before attempting to do anything yourself if you are not sure of the severity of your strain or sprain. For a sprain or strain that you know is not severe enough to warrant proper medical treatment. If your pain stems from a muscle injury, treat it immediately with RICE: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. Rest the injured body part, and then apply ice (an ice pack or pack of frozen vegetables or fruit) for 20 minutes on, then 20 minutes off. Add compression with a firm elastic bandage. Elevate the injured part to keep swelling minimal. If the muscles of the back are the problem, lie on your back and prop your legs on top of a chair or bench.
