  1. Question 1 of 4
    1. Question

    For minor injuries, experts recommend RICE. What does RICE stand for?

    Correct

    Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation is recommended for minor injuries. Rest means avoiding those activities that cause you pain, not avoiding exercise altogether. For ice, use a thin towel between the ice and skin to protect the skin from damage. Compression is placing light pressure on the impacted area, such as a brace or ace wrap. Elevation means getting the injured area above your heart, whenever possible.
