Hi

Cortisone will offer relief for the inflammation but it can delay healing progress of the torn ligaments.

It is best to splint the ankle, elevate the limb and apply ice packs 5 times a day. You can perform physiotherapy once you feel better. Take Paracetamol for pain relief.

Thanks and regards.
