Treatment for your sprained ankle: Reduce and control the swelling by using the RICE principle.
R-rest; rest from sports and try to minimize walking
I-ice; use a cold pack to the injured site for 15-20 minutes at a time, throughout the day
C-compression; use a wrap bandage to control the swelling
E-elevate; leg elevation further reduces swelling, gravity assists the fluid out the ankle and back toward the heart
