In brief: RICE therapy
The pneumonic r.I.
C.E. Helps guide the general treatment of orthopedic injuries until a more thorough eval can be done. It stands for rest, ice, compression, and elevation. In addition, tylenol (acetaminophen) and anti-inflammatories can help with the pain. If it hurts to put weight on it, don't. Get some crutches and stay off of it. A brace or immobilizer can help relieve pain as well.
