Dr. Vipul Prajapati MD

Hi dear, for sprained ankle you need to immobilize for week or apply any cast or belt. Give minimum pressure on that ankle. Take any muscle relaxant medication. if pain take analgesic. Thank you

cold temperature or compresses are good for sprained ankles with elevation and rest. antiinflammatory medication can help with the pain.

Dr.      Nidhi Setia MD
