Q What can I do when I sprain my ankle?
The first thing to do is get off your foot and rest and ice the area. This, along with elevation will help keep the swelling and pain down. If you have access to it, a compressive wrap, like and ace bandage or an ankle sleeve, is a great option. I also recommend putting on compression socks if you own them. But remember of its not better In 48 hours or if you can't walk on it, call our office for X-rays and an evaluation.
