AFC Orthopedic Bed

Rest – After an accident, get to a comfortable location as soon as possible, and rest to prevent additional strain on the injury.

AFC Orthopedic Ice Pack

Ice – Wrap an ice pack in a towel and apply it to the injury for 15 to 20 minutes. Reapply the ice every 3 hours. If you don’t have an ice pack, a bag of frozen produce will get the job done.

AFC Orthopedic Knee Brace

Compress – Put pressure on the injured area by wrapping it with an elastic bandage. Make sure the bandage is tight but not too tight. You can tell if the bandage is too tight when the injured area turns blue or starts feeling numb.

AFC Orthopedic Pillows

Elevate – To properly elevate your injury, position the injured area to rest above your heart. The most common way to elevate the injury is to stack several pillows under your foot, arm, ankle or leg while resting in bed or on a sofa.
