Heat pack – this isn’t the most effective way to treat a muscle or joint injury. When you are injured, you bleed internally and adding heat may make you bleed more.

The best way to treat this injury is by applying RICE.
R – is for rest (don’t try to walk it off)
I – is for ice (apply ice wrapped in a towel)
C – is for compress (support the injury with a bandage)
E – is for elevate (raise the injury above the level of the heart.
