For Ballet Injuries, Think RICE

Part of the Ballet For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Ballet dancers know that injuries such as pulled muscles and tendons are common — rigorous rehearsals combined with extreme positions can do that. To treat ballet injuries, remember the acronym RICE to aid your recovery:

  • R = Rest. Get the heck off the injured part.

  • I = Ice. Ice your injury for 20 minutes several times during the first day.

  • C = Compression. Wrap up the injury to discourage it from growing.

  • E = Elevation. Lift the injury higher than your heart.

Always consult a medical professional about any serious injury.
