      • Rest
        • Helps the body use its nutrients and O2 for the healing process.
        • The repair process is facilitated by allowing fibrin and collagen to form across the wound edges with little disruption.
      • Ice (Cold and Heat)
        • To promote vasoconstriction and decrease swelling, pain, and congestion from increased metabolism in the area of inflammation
        • Heat may be used later to promote healing by increasing the circulation to the inflamed site and subsequent removal of debris and localize inflammatory agents.
      • Compression and immobilization
        • Counters the vasodilation effects and development of edema.
        • Promotes healing by decreasing the tissues’ metabolic needs
        • Evaluate the patient’s circulation after application and at regular intervals.
        • Swelling can occur within the closed space of a cast and compromise circulation.
      • Elevation
        • Elevating the injured extremity above the level of the heart reduces the edema at the inflammatory site by increasing venous and lymphatic return
