Ankle sprain

Ankle sprain

Ankle sprain treatment will depend on the severity of the sprain. An ankle sprain is an injury to the foot’s ligaments in the ankle. Ankle sprain may occur if the ankle rolls, turns or twists beyond its normal range of motion.

Ankle sprain treatment may include:

  • Resting the ankle
  • Wrapping the ankle with elastic bandage or tape
  • Ice pack application (to reduce inflammation)
  • Elevating the ankle
  • Gradual return to walking and exercise
  • A walking cast (for moderate sprains)
  • Surgery (for severe sprains)
  • Physical therapy
