What treatment can be taken for swelled and painful ankles ?

Injured my ankles in a fall and then got on a plane. I walked onto the plane, but couldn t walk off, because my ankles and feet swelled up very painfully. Nothing is broken, but the swelling is slow to go down. I am icing and elevating and wearing support . Any suggestions of what else I could be doing?.
