Limb support increase stability Cold Applications Cold compress these are so that the blood vessels constrict, causing a reduction in the flow of blood to the injured area. This is to reduce swelling and also the pain felt by stopping the nerve endings from

conducting impulses It is best used directly after an injury but also for 48-72 hours afterwards. Cold Application 1. 2. 3. 4. Cold Burning Aching
