An ankle sprain occurs when fibers of the ligaments, which support the ankle, are stretched or torn.
Solution: After the initial inflammation phase is over (usually 48 to 72 hours), soothie° heat therapy may be used to treat an ankle sprain. However, heat should not be used when swelling is present. Compression and elevation should continue as long as swelling is present.
Our soothie°, the thermapeutic cushion that lets you choose hot therapy, cold therapy or room- temperature softness any time you need long-lasting, hands-free comfort and pain relief. Use soothie° sitting or standing, at home, in the car or at the office, horizontally or vertically, on any part of your body that feels stiff, sore or needs support. Soothie° comes with two patented Microcore® element packs, making it easy and convenient to choose, use and alternate hot and cold therapies for maximum relief. With a quick switch, you can use your soothie° with its Microcore® element heated or cooled, or with no Microcore® element pack at all.
