Ice for24m: I've is helpful to prevent some of the body's initial inflammatory reaction but after 24hous that's essentially over. Switching to heat will help the body bring in what's needed to begin the healing process.

MBB brace is best: If the nerve is damaged then foot drop may be permanent. The brace I described is the latest. Very comfortable and unintrusive. Therapy can help wth strength and reeducation of the muscles.
