Agree to P.R.I.C.E. or Not?Created by:
The P.R.I.C.E. (protect, rest, ice, compression, and elevation) has long been the standard in the management of acute sports injury and trauma. There are new interesting updates that dispute the effectivity of the famed protocol in soft tissue healing. New studies have shown that it promotes delay instead of accelerating tissue repair. In the Philippine Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine, there is now debate as to whether icing is helpful or harmful to recovery. For the MIMS community, would you still prescribe the P.R.I.C.E. protocol despite the new studies that dispute its use?
