This article assists nurses to use the acronym PRICE (protection, rest, ice, compression and elevation) to guide the treatment of patients with uncomplicated soft tissue injuries to their upper or lower limbs.

Nurses should have an understanding of the rationale and evidence base supporting PRICE treatment of soft tissue injuries.
Providing accurate information to patients and carers about the management of soft tissue injuries and anticipated recovery time is an important aspect of treatment.
Further research is required to develop best practice in the treatment of soft tissue injuries.
