Slips, Falls, Bruises, Painful Joints

Filed under: First Aid, Minor Injuries, Joints, Bones, Muscles — Administrator @ 9:07 am

Stumble it!

This time of year always seems to be full of more slips and falls due to the snow and icy conditions. Although these types of injuries can happen any time of the year.

You might want to keep this page handy.

The type of injuries in this article are not serious type injuries but are the bumps and Bruises you experience occasionally when doing everyday activities including things like: tripping over a Toy or rug, twisting a foot/ankle while playing backyard sports and boom – you are on the ground, slipping on the ice and falling on your buttocks. Maybe even getting elbowed in the chest/or breast while playing with your kids. The scenarios are too vast to list here, but you know what I’m talking about.

Your elbow and knee joints, along with any fingers and toes can also get bruised and strained, (but not broken). Of course, Bruising occurs around these joints involving the soft tissue.

Heaven forbid, if you should hit your face. This can produce terrible Bruising too.

As with any of the above injuries, the first step is to apply ice or cold compresses. The sooner you can apply cold, the less likely for tissue damage occurring from broken blood vessels. Ice or cold helps to reduce pain and swelling. If you suspect something is sprained or broken, keep the area quiet, keep the ice on and seek medical attention.

If you suspect Bruising, apply a few drops of Pure Helichrysum to the area immediately. Then continue applying the cold compress. Helichrysum has the ability to reduce the under the surface bleeding associated with Bruising and is also great at reducing pain.

Applying ice or cold compresses for the first few days – 3 or more times a day will help. When using ice packs, please pay attention as you don’t want to cause frost bite or frozen skin. Between the ice and cold packs, lightly massage the following blend on the affected areas.

For General Bruising

Blend well and apply to bruised areas several times a day.

For General Joint Pains

Blend well and massage onto affected joint/s 4 to 6 times a day. After 3 days, you can begin to apply heat compresses.

Bruise – Diminishing Blend

Blend well and apply to the bruised area several times a day.
