Now what to do with a sprained ankle_ Do you ice it, wrap it, or elevate it? Would a nice, warm bath ease the pain and swelling? Written by one of the world's leading sports medicine doctors and a well-known science writer, Anybody's Sports Medicine Book explains why crushed ice is better than cubed, and why you should never soak a sprained ankle in warm water. With each chapter dedicated to a different part of the body, this practical, at-home guide gives prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation tips for the most common sports-related injuries, from tendinitis to tennis elbow.
- Includes a cross-referenced index listing injuries by sport
