Immediate injuries need immediate P.R.I.C.E.


When you suffer an injury, the first 48 hours is the most important. This first phase of healing is called the acute phase, when blood rushes to the area to fix the problem. The body naturally experiences heat, pain, redness and swelling to protect itself. A change in colour and a stiff joint are also signs of injury. Chronic injuries are different than acute because they are nagging aches and pains that get worse over time. Both acute and chronic type injuries can be painful and prevent the body from healing.

His choice to refrain from an appeal not only inspired a nation and beyond, but also gave a much needed reminder of why we participate in sport. Why medals don’t equate to the true nature of competing in sport.
