What to do to heal a ankle sprain ?

Relative rest

Ankle_sprain
Start immediately with ice application, rest, and Advil. If you can walk, continue to walk to stimulate production of joint fluid. You may want to have some support with an ACE bandage or other splint that will limit side-to-side motion. Depending on the severity of the sprain, it may take weeks to fully heal. The worst case scenario would be that you have a fracture, can't walk, and need an x-ray

How is a high ankle sprain treated?

It Depends

Ankle
There are differing opinions with this subject. But a high ankle sprain needs to be immobilized, usually in a boot, sometimes walking and others using crutches to start with. The recovery time is usually longer than a standard ankle sprain. On occasion if there is a major tear of the ligament, surgery can be needed to fix it.
