Dr. Frances Dyro answered

Immobilize: The sural nerve is a purely sensory nerve that supplies the outside of the lower leg and outer edge of the foot. It enters the foot behind the malleolus(bump) of the outer ankle. Injury can be aggravated by movement of the ankle because tendons of the ankle travel with the nerve. Resting the sural nerve will help it heal.
