Yes with therapy: This depends on the extent of the injury. What is injured and torn, etc. Ask your physician to have you see an ankle specialist.

Exam/x-ray: to rule out chip fracture. You will need an ankle support and if severe, crutches or a walking shoe or cast. See an orthopedic expert.

Discuss with doctor: Continue to stay off foot, rest, elevate, ice. Take Ibuprofen to help with the swelling. Sprains take time to heal. Check in with your doctor.
