Ankle sprain.: It sounds like your ankle is healing up nicely. The swelling might just be residual and may very well continue to recede with more time. If at six weeks total you still have difficulties with the ankle, you might need another evaluation and perhaps an MRI scan. See how it goes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
6 days post ankle sprain, my foot ankle and bottom of leg go numb. Especially if i stand on it for a whilst. No fracture or torn ligaments only sprain?
Ankle Sprain: An ankle sprain is really a misnomer in that there are typically ligaments torn (partially or fully) around the ankle. The tearing from those ligaments may cause swelling (mild to severe) and the swelling may impinge on the surrounding skin nerves. This may be causing the numbness, especially when standing because fluid naturally builds up lower with gravity. Hope this helps, good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pain at r ligament of l ankle 11 weeks after sprain. 1 doc said ligament injury, wear brace n rest to heal. 1 doc said ankle exercise. Who's right?

However, you need to get on crutches and be non weight bearing. When you stand the swelling has nowhere to go and stays in your foot. That's why elevation above the heart is essential. Also ice the ankle when you get the swelling down and keep it elevated. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I have a 10 year old knee injury caused by a bike accident. My knee is stiff&hurts after "insanity" workouts. Should I apply cooling or heating cream?
Start with cool pack: In general, we recommend ice initially for an acute injury of the knee. This is to minimize the swelling. Then after 48 hours switch to heat to increase the blood flow and increase healing. Rest, ice, wrap and elevate or 'RICE' are tips for handling acute injury. Best of luck, if no better within the week, get a good exam in a face to face visit. ...Read more
