Sprained ankle 3 weeks ago still swollen and in pain is this normal in recovery? Have been using the price method and keeping it wrapped in banadge

Ankle Sprain: Not unusual to have it last 3 weeks, may last as long as 6-8 weeks if bad enough sprain. Some times sprains are significant enough to cause instability of the ankle. Physical therapy can help with the functional recovery from your ankle sprain and help prevent future sprains. Continue your current conservative care. Add range of motion exercises. If difficult in couple weeks get evaluated. ...Read more

Sprained ankle this evening went to doctors they said its sprained wrapped it in ace bandage n aircast is she to sleep in the air cast?

Sprained ankle this evening went to doctors they said its sprained wrapped it in ace bandage n aircast is she to sleep in the air cast?

OK, if necessary.: I would think that the ace bandage should be sufficient as long as the foot(lower leg) is elevated on several pillows. Some times too much compression can be uncomfortable. The decision would be a bit easier if the severity of the sprain was given. ...Read more

Many possibilities: R.I.C.E. Rest, ice, compression, elevation. Immobilization with a splint or brace may be of benefit in the initial phase of recovery. Oral anti-inflammatory medication may help with the pain and swelling. Once improved, mobilization and physical therapy can help restore strength and function. Healing times may vary. ...Read more

I sprained my ankle 7 weeks ago and it is still swollen and can't seem to bend it in all directions without pain. Tried ice and elevation, wrapping?

I sprained my ankle 7 weeks ago and it is still swollen and can't seem to bend it in all directions without pain.  Tried ice and elevation, wrapping?

Unstable Ankle.: Ice, elevation and wrapping is the appropriate way to initiate the treatment of a sprained ankle, provided the "rest" element in not left out. (RICE). This works wonders for less serious ankle sprains, but will fall short for the more serious ones. In these situations, the damaged tissues need to be immobilized with some element of compression. A cam walker usually suffices. Time to seek expert. ...Read more

What do I do about recurring ankle sprain? Wrap it before exercise?

What do I do about recurring ankle sprain? Wrap it before exercise?

You should check: Chronic ankle instability is a condition characterized by a recurring “giving way” of the outer (lateral) side of the ankle. This condition often develops after repeated ankle sprains. Usually the “giving way” occurs while walking or doing other activities, but it can also happen when you’re just standing. Many athletes, as well as others, suffer from chronic ankle instability.Thank you. ...Read more

Does a ACE wrap for an ankle sprain actually help? It doesn't seem to change the swelling much. What's bad about swelling? Does swelling cause damage?

Yes: An ace wrap can help reduce dependent swelling after an injury. You must also rest, and ice and elevate the foot above heart and head x 30 minutes 4 x/day, until the swelling is gone. If swelling persists, no damage is done, except that you will probably continue to hurt and likely will get stiff in the ankle. Controlling swelling allows for quicker, pain free recovery. ...Read more

Does taping your ankle sprain with sports tape from the sports store help you more than an ACE wrap does? Taping seems stronger and tighter than ace.

Does taping your ankle sprain with sports tape from the sports store help you more than an ACE wrap does? Taping seems stronger and tighter than ace.

No: Taping is not for recent injuries. It is for old injuries to help prevent re-injury. Taping is too tight and dangerous in the early post-injury stages. Ace wraps are elastic and can accommodate some swelling. Right after injury you are trying to reduce swelling, not cut off blood flow. Use and ace wrap until the swelling is resolved, then start taping for return to sports. ...Read more
