The first aid treatment of an injured knee is well encapsulated by the acronym P.R.I.C.E.

NB. Before embarking on this treatment it is important to exclude limb threatening injuries.


There are a spectrum of recommendations and interventions depending upon the severity of the injury. These range from avoiding high risk activities (football!) to full leg plaster of Paris with strict none weight bearing.
