Q Is there a "right" way to ice your foot?
Yes, there is a right way to ice your foot! It is important to keep these pointers in mind:
-We recommend 10-15 minutes on, 45 minutes off 2-3 times a day
-Never apply the ice directly to the skin- you can cause frostbite! Place a barrier such as a towel or sock between your skin and the ice.
-If you have a bandage on your foot and the ice can't directly reach the injured area, apply ice to the ankle as it will cool the blood going to the affected area
