Ankle Sprain

Elevation means to keep the foot above the heart level so the swelling is reduced or prevented. You can use pillows to elevate your ankles. Make sure they are well supported. I recommend that you do not play for a little while... let your ligaments stretch back to normal. Keep the exercise program continued. Any further injury to the ligament at this time might result in continued problem in future. So be careful abt it during any activity. Wear comfortable shoes to provide maximum and optimal support. Take Tylenol if it hurts. And use ace bandage if needed to support the ankles. It is very imp that you take care of ankle. I have seen people who when don't take care hav recurrent problems and they end up doing surgery to correct it. I don't mean to scare you. I just want you to be careful. - Seema Summan

RICE - Rest Ice Compresion Elevation.
Lots of icing and rest. 15 minutes on and 15 minutes off for about an hour a few times a day. It is very important to stay off of it so long as it hurts and to keep icing it. Once you feel as though you can walk on it do so, but make sure you don't over do it.

How to survive a heart attack when alone

Let's say it's 6:15 p.m. and you're driving home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You're really tired, upset and frustrated.

Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to radiate out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home, unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far. What can you do? You've been trained in CPR but the guy that taught the course neglected to tell you how to perform it on yourself.

Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, this article seemed in order. Without help, the person whose heart stops beating properly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.

These victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let up until help arrives, or until the heart is to begin beating normally again.

Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.

Tell as many other people as possible about this, it could save their lives!
