R.I.C.E. and Redema


August 13, 2008

The Olympics are in full swing, and my Korean husband and I are enthralled since our cable network is also providing coverage through MBC, the Korean NBC affiliate. But, whether the viewing is in Korean, Mandarin (yes, we have that, too – nice temptation to brush up on my Chinese as well), and of course, English, the risk for injury is quite high for the athletes in most of the sports we view.

You may not be an Olympic competitor any more than I am, but you are likely acquainted with injuries. We wince along with the athletes who do get injured because we likely understand the pain, plus we sympathize with the fact that it may last for at least a few minutes or sadly longer

. I may not follow the likes of Tiger Woods religiously, but when I heard he was out due to a torn acl, I had to wonder what treatment he would receive. Probably somewhere along the way, he was advised by his medical advisors to use R.I.C.E. or parts of it. We may have even seen R.I.C.E. applied immediately after an Olympic contender collapses in pain from an injury.

What is R.I.C.E.? It is the acronym for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. The combination of R.I.C.E. should be used for the first two or three days after an injury, such as a sprain or strain. If the condition doesn’t improve or worsens by then, one should see his/her medical professional for further evaluation. Visit http://sportsmedicine.about.com/cs/rehab/a/rice.htm for more information about R.I.C.E. and where it can be especially useful.

In any case, I was pleased to think that my efforts to treat my tired and sometimes swollen legs and feet with rest and elevation with my Redema Ottoman Footrest are RICE-on target! (OK, a silly pun, and yes, the ice and compression could certainly be added if needed.)

Here’s my salute to the athletes of the moment since they definitely do even more than I could dream of physically. Now, if I can get a Redema to those who would benefit… how rice, sorry, nice might that be?

Let me know if you can help! I’m still collecting addresses and setting aside Bright Indigo Redemas for our men and women in service. I will ship out the ones I’ve got after Labor Day (can you think of a group that works harder than our military?), so don’t delay. The deal is this: Order a Bright Indigo Blue Redema, and I will send another one to a service member in Iraq or Afghanistan. If you have a family member serving abroad, and you think they would appreciate the touch of creature comfort the Redema provides, add the mailing information when you order yours online at www.redema.us.

Please contact me if you any questions, and here’s to your pursuit of comfort!
