What to do after a trauma?

What to do immediately after an acute injury, such as a fall, a sprain, a tear? To halt inflammation, it is important to cool the area using water or ice. Within three to four days, the inflammatory phase will be over and at this point, if the doctor recommends it, you can start with massages and rehabilitation. Massages are always useful, on the other hand, in cases of chronic pain (e.g. arthrosis).
