- determine the cause
- in acute cases, apply several wrap treatments one after another
- replace the wrap when it feels warm to the touch
- elevation reduces swelling
Wrap treatments using the liquid for external use "Retterspitz Äußerlich" draw heat away from the affected area, alleviate pain and help reduce swelling in the tissue. The wrap for neck and smaller joints "Retterspitz Wickel für Hals und kleinere Gelenke" and small leg wraps "Retterspitz Nasse Strümpfe" are the right size for this. After removing the wrap from the joint, rub in the muscle treatment "Retterspitz Muskelcreme" to further promote the healing process.
