Got hit in the face with a volleyball. How do I reduce the swelling?

Got hit in the face with a volleyball. How do I reduce the swelling?

Natural healing: When our bodies sustain an injury, the immediate response is inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling). This is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. The key is to do things that reduce the parts of inflammation such as ice and antiinflammatory medications in the first 24hrs. It will reduce quickly. ...Read more

Initial treatment involves ice packs (although some people find more relief with heat) to the site for 20 mins 2-3 times per day to reduce inflammation and Motrin/Advil every 6-8 hours. Good luck! ...Read more

Should i be concernded that its hurts to cough after a volleyball dive? I dove for a ball and landed on my right side and now it hurts to cough

Should i be concernded that its hurts to cough after a volleyball dive? I dove for a ball and landed on my right side and now it hurts to cough

Taking : Taking a fall on the volley ball court and landing on your chest with subsequent painful coughing leads me to think of 2 possible injuries. The first is a muscle contusion. When you strike a muscle hard enough it becomes injured. The nerve impulses in this area fire when there is a repeated trauma, ie a cough to the area. An intercostal muscle (between the ribs) is often the concern. The second concern if the trauma was violent enough could be a fractured rib. This usually causes pain just with the simple act of breathing. If this continues, and/or there are other symptoms such as coughing up blood or shortness of breath, you should see your doctor right away. ...Read more
