In brief: A injury treatement.
Rice stands for : rest----stay off the injury ice---ice the area with a cold pack 15 minutes every1-2 hours or so compression---wear an appropriately applied elastic bandage elevation--keep the affected area elevate above the level or the heart as much as possible.
Problems: see pcp.
