x ray

Detailed Answer:
Hi I m dr Alok, pleased to answer your health related queries
Ankle sprain it self is benign ilnness. But sometime, minor injury can lead to a small hairline fracture, which can be detected only by x ray. If there is no fracture, simple hot water fomentation, rest and avoidance of further strain to the joint can leads to full recovery
Hope this will help
Take care
