How to Handle Your Foot Injury for a Full Recovery

If you have a foot injury, you should follow the basic principle called R.I.C.E.  The R stands for rest, I for ice, C for compression, and E for elevation. After a period of a few hours, if you cannot walk on your foot, then you need to have an X-ray to see if you have a fracture. I believe that within 24 hours, if you’re not feeling better, you should see a podiatrist.
