Immediately after the sprain Arnica should be given every 15 minutes.
The first step as soon as a sprain takes place is cold water application. Keep the sprained part under a cold tap water for 2 – 3 minutes.
Carefully twist and move the foot in every direction and so give displacements, a chance to slip back in to place.
In a half cup of hot water mix one teaspoonful of Arnica Q. (mother tincture) and apply a compress of cloth moistened with this solution on affected part. Moisten the compress of cloth every 5-10 minutes at least for one hour. When the pain has ceased and the swelling subsided, external application be discarded and only Arnica internally repeated at long intervals.
