Do not ice a sprained ankle.

“Ice and complete rest may delay healing instead of helping.”
 Gabe Mirkin, M.D., Creator of R.I.C.E. (rest, ice compression, elevation)

Everyone knows about R.I.C.E. (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation). In a nut shell, R.I.C.E. suggests you should rest and ice a sprained ankle. But, recent research has actually found that ice STOPS the healing process in its tracks and prolonged rest cannot repair strength and range of motion. So, ice actually inhibits the immune system in repairing and healing your sprained ankle and rest never lets you get back to full strength.

I know… it’s the exact opposite of what everyone has been telling you and you may not believe it. But, the reality is that ice is ONLY good for short term pain management. Basically, it make the area numb which reduces pain levels for a little while. But, the cost is heavy. By icing the area and reducing circulation, your body cannot get the immune cells into the ankle to help clean up the damage and begin the repair process.

What you need to understand is that the body’s healing response to an injury is brilliant and you want to help it, not get in the way and stop it. So, let’s take a closer look at rest and ice and how they harm the healing process of a sprained ankle.

10 Biggest Problems with R.I.C.E. for a Sprained Ankle:

  1. Takes 1-2 months to heal a sprained ankle.
  2. Up to 30% of people still have pain 1 year later!
  3. Does not properly or fully heal ankle damage.
  4. Does not improve range of motion in ankle.
  5. Does not heal nerve damage in the ankle.
  6. Does not improve strength in the ankle or calf.
  7. Does not improve strength in ankle stabilizers.
  8. Does NOT reduce risk of future sprained ankles.
  9. Gives you a false sense of security when you are out of pain.
  10. Decreases overall speed and jumping ability, since ankle never fully heals.

Remember, swelling is the body’s first line of defense after a sprain. It helps immobilize the joint so you don’t do anymore damage. If you just rest and ice, the swelling will go down at a very slow rate by itself. In addition, scar tissue will most likely develop which really inhibits how far and well your ankle can move. Of course, just using rest and ice will help ensure that this inflexibility and weakness will never improve.

One of the biggest issues with rest and ice as a primary treatment is that it does not confront one of the most important aspects of the healing process. When you get any kind of injury, there is always damage to the nerves and the ability of the central nervous system to communicate with them. We take this kind of communication for granted and just assume our body will do what we tell it to do. But, if you don’t deal with this damage, the body will be slower to respond after an injury and even once you heal, if you don’t do proper rehab. Rest and ice do next to nothing to heal this neuromuscular damage.

Think about this for a second… you have a sprained ankle and you are sitting around with your foot up on something for weeks or months. When you stop using muscles, you know that they get weaker. If you continue to rest and rest without any strengthening or stretching, not only will your ankle heal much slower, but it will always be more susceptible to injury, because all the stabilizer muscles that protect your ankle will be severely atrophied.

One of the biggest mistakes people make is going back to their regular life once they feel good again. The problem is that your ankle is still really weak and susceptible to injury. Most people never even consider it. A recent study by the NCAA showed that students who did not rehab their injury were 70% more at risk for the same injury to happen again.

So, what does all this mean? You need HEM Ankle Rehab, which is the best at home rehab program for fully healing a sprained ankle.

HEM will help ensure you heal all the damage from a sprained ankle which will help ensure you have a healthy body. It’s safe and works fast and will help ensure you stay safe in the future.

If you want to heal your ankle fully & fast…

And get back to doing what you love PAIN-FREE, without the fear of re-injury

This will be the most important thing you ever do for yourself.

Here’s why:

My name is Scott Malin and fifteen years ago, I had to give up what I love… playing basketball. It literally crushed me to give it up!!

But, I had sprained my ankles so many times that I could no longer play.

Every time it happened, I used R.I.C.E. (rest, ice elevation, compression), but my ankles took months to heal and just kept getting weaker and more painful.

I tried everything, including ankle braces, but they made my ankles even weaker and then my knees started hurting too!

When I sprained my ankle one last time and had to crawl off the court, I knew I was done.

That night, I sat in my apartment and cried.

I was in my early thirties and thought I had to give up what I loved for the rest of my life.

But, I had no other option…

My ankles were just way too weak, stiff and unstable and painkillers/ice did nothing anymore.

As I lay in bed, staring up at the ceiling, I remembered back to when I trained with a clinician for the National Academy of Sports Medicine and Soft Tissue Therapist for the Los Angeles Clippers.

I also thought about a revolutionary Naturopath that taught me so much about healing the body naturally.

Then, I came up with a crazy idea…

It instantly improved how my ankle felt.

And the more I did it, the better my ankle got.

By day 6, my ankle was 100% pain-free and felt stronger and more stable than BEFORE I got injured.

The best part… I PLAYED BASKETBALL AGAIN, BUT THERE WAS NO PAIN!!

Afterward, I cried again, but they were tears of joy!!

When I told them what I did, my basketball buddies laughed and said I was crazy.

They called me a “dreamer”.

But, I didn’t care.

Because I had nothing to lose and everything to gain.

I threw my ankle braces away.

After months of late nights, early mornings, and lots of trial and error…

I created a complete, at-home healing system with incredibly reliable results:

  • Heals new ankle injuries including ANY type and grade of ankle sprain.
  • Heals old ankle injuries that never fully healed.
  • Heals weak and unstable ankles.
  • Even heals most Achilles, calf and foot injuries!

Since I was a fitness trainer, I was able to help all my clients (celebrities and athletes) whenever they got injured (which happened a lot!).

I was even on the news a few times!!!

The response from my clients was so overwhelming that a few of them eventually convinced me to make it available to everyone.

And even though it is incredibly complete, I always wanted to keep it SUPER simple and easy to do.

So, just follow along with me on any device and that’s it!

You get instant access to all the videos, which are short and focused on quickly giving you the information you need.

I will show you the absolute BEST rehab techniques, exercises, stretches, activations, holistic techniques, prehab techniques, etc….

These are techniques you will NOT find online anywhere else.

You will learn the perfect form for everything to get the best possible results.

It has taken many years of incredibly hard and dedicated work, but I am so humbled that over 100,000 people have healed themselves fully and fast with my program.

If you don’t believe me, please, check out all the reviews, including video testimonials, before and after pictures, etc. from people of all ages.

And listen, I know you’re probably still skeptical. That’s totally fair…

That’s why we have a very simple, no hassle, 30 day money back guarantee, so it’s completely risk-free to give it a try right now.

I created this program, because I don’t want others to go through all the pain and misery that I did!!

I don’t want anyone else to give up what they love…

Life is too short!!!

And now, there’s an easy way you can heal yourself and get back to your life.

I wish you all the best and thank you!!

Just got your videos for the holistic rehab the other day. It has already helped and I am so grateful as I know Drs want to cut you open and ask questions later. My left ankle is very badly sprained, completely black and purple and swollen half way up my calf. I am an athlete and have zero intentions of being cut on now or in the future! It was a major eversion off a curb and I just want it to get back to normal. Thanks so much for putting this HEM ankle rehab together, it's a godsend! Have a beautiful day.

Hello Mr. Malin,

I want to thank you for this website. In the end of november, I sprained my ankle and my doctor said that there is an avulsion fracture in my ankle(ATFL). I had really hard times after this incident. When I was looking for how to heal fast, I saw your website. I tried to do as much as different exercises that you showed. Now I face some difficulties during my daily life due to my foot but swelling is decreasing everyday thanks to exercises. Especially, the video about how to activate ankle is very beneficial for me.

Thanks for your support both mentally and physically.

Sincerely,
Orhun Oktar, Electrical and Electronics Engineer
