Post injury rehab: Just as important as the treatment or surgery is the rehab of the extremity. The isolation of the part will weaken the muscles and hurt your balance. Several weeks to months of physical therapy often done to help bring you back to normal, and, even then, you'll have to ease back into the sport or activity or risk reinjury of the area(s). ...Read more

Neither: unless you have a varus deformity of your foot and ankle (where your foot tilts inward) due to peroneal tendon weakness, angular deformity of ankle joint or a plantar flexed 1st ray that predisposes you to an ankle sprain, orthotics are not necessary to treat or prevent sprains.
