I am a school nurse, so I am adept at making first aid supplies from household products. I don’t believe in spending money on fancy supplies. I believe in improvising. I make finger splints out of tongue depressors/popsicle sticks and tape. I make arm splints from the flaps of cardboard boxes if I have to.
Yesterday I went for a run and immediately afterward I felt a knot in my right calf. This morning it was worse. At home today I have my children to
be a slave to care for, so I can’t sit for very long. I filled a baggie with ice, wrapped a paper towel around it, applied tape (well, garage sale pricing “dots” because I couldn’t find tape), and an Ace wrap that’s been reused many times. Worked like a charm!
