Spraining your ankle is no fun. Below we're going to give you some advice on how to use apps when to prevent and treat this very common injury.
If you are finding that you suffer ankle sprains easily, you're not alone. Ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries in people of all ages. That's why ankle injury prevention exercises are something that many people should know about and try to do, especially when they are in a sports program or when they're very active. Whether your goal is to prevent ankle sprains in sports, or you simply would like to be able to walk without always turning or spraining your ankle, an app you should download is Stretching Exercises - Flexibility Training. This app has stretching exercises for all muscle groups, is available for both Apple and Android devices, and it will help you stay healthy. Sadly, though, sometimes sprains happen even when we're prepared. We'll show you what to do when that happens next.
If despite your best efforts, you still sprain your ankle or you're with someone who has, it's a good idea to learn some basic first aid on how to treat ankle sprains. There are several types of lateral ankle sprains, and the most common thing to help someone who has sprained their ankle is by applying ice and an ankle brace or an ace bandage. One of the best first aid apps that you can download is the American Red Cross app. This is an app everyone should have so they know what to do in many medical emergencies until the paramedics arrive or the person can get to the doctor. Using a first aid app will help you be smarter and help others when they're injured.
Not only is an ankle sprain painful, but it also can lay you up for a couple of days. If you have an ankle sprain, you know that many times you have to stay off your foot so that it can heal. There are different types of things that you can do for treating a sprained ankle at home. One is an ice slush bath. Other people believe that Epsom salt for a sprained ankle will do the trick. But two of the most important things are rest and elevation. So settle down with your favorite gaming apps, such as Candy Crush Saga, settle in for a movie marathon with Vudu, or perhaps read a good book on the Kindle app.
