Most ankle sprains need only a period of protection to heal. The healing process takes about four weeks to six weeks.  Rest your ankle by not walking on it. Ice should be immediately applied. It keeps the swelling down. It can be used for 20 minutes to 30 minutes, three or four times daily. Combine ice with wrapping to decrease swelling, pain and dysfunction. Compression dressings, bandages or ace-wraps immobilize and support the injured ankle. Elevate your ankle above your heart level for 48 hours. Consult Orthopedician...
