At least 3 weeks..: Hello, Tendon and ligament healing take about 4 weeks based on many studies, passive range of motion is allowed during week 3 and active range of motion is allow come week 4.

Depends: It depends on the specific diagnosis. If you have a simple ankle sprain that has improved to the point it is often not painful at all, you may not need any immobilization. If you are improving to the extent you are nearly back to normal, you might just give it more time. If you are having persistent episodes of intermittent pain, then I would be seen for an accurate diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Be seen: It would probably be a good idea to be seen first, in part to make sure you have not sustained a more severe injury than an ankle sprain such as, for example, a fracture. Mild ankle fractures may not need any immobilization although sometimes an ace wrap can reduce swelling. Severe grade III ankle sprains can be treated for the short term with rigid immobilization such as cast or boot. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I sprained my ankle 10-20 times already. It's painful. I've worn a ankle boot for 6 months. It stopped hurting but it came back? What should I do now?
Be seen: You would be wise to be seen and evaluated. When someone "sprains" there ankle, they stretch or tear ligaments that stabilize the ankle. They will often heal and so most people who sprain there ankle fully recover. But sometimes the ligaments don't heal and chronic instability with recurrent sprains can result. Ligament reconstruction may be indicated. ...Read more
