When faced with a spouse bearing a painful ankle injury such as a grade 3 ankle sprain suffered the week before Thanksgiving, ice becomes an important part of one's life. Driving through rush hour traffic at the end of the day for example can result in an ankle roughly two to three sizes larger than normal.
To deal with this situation, Ted came up with the following ankle injury icing tip that works quite efficiently. You will need:
One damaged foot...
|Complete with protective sock|
|In small cube form|
|Stolen from faithful house cat (he was done with it)|
After two twenty minute sessions with an hour long warming break in between, my ankle goes back to the size which can currently be considered 'normal' for it, although I'm beginning to suspect that it and my left ankle will never really match again. It hurts less afterward too.
Probably a better idea though, if you can manage it, is to just not fall down like a big dumb klutz in the first place.
