Hello there....., Rest. Avoid activities that cause pain, swelling or discomfort....Ice. Use an ice pack or slush bath for 15 to 20 minutes and repeat every two to three hours.. Compression. To help stop swelling, compress the ankle with an elastic bandage until the swelling stops. Don't hinder circulation by wrapping too tightly. Begin wrapping at the end farthest from your heart....Elevation. To reduce swelling, elevate your ankle above the level of your heart, especially at night. Consult Orthopedician if symptoms persists....
