In general, treatment in the first 48 to 72 hours consists of resting the ankle, icing 20 minutes every two to three hours, compressing with an ACE wrap, and elevating, which means positioning the leg and ankle so that the toes are above the level of patient’s nose. If you cannot bear weight are better treated in a removable walking boot until they can comfortably bear weight. Physical therapy is a mainstay. You should learn to strengthen the muscles around the ankle, particularly the peroneals.
