RICE stands for rest, ice, compression and elevation. Those are the four things to do when you incur a sports injury.

PRICE is an acronym for a basic treatment protocol of acute sports injuries. PRICE stands for: Protection, Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. PRICE can help reduce pain, prevent further injury, and minimize swelling until proper treatment is obtained. RICE is the same protocol without protection and can be used for minor injuries.
