In brief: Limit activity.

Rigorous activity should be limited to allow for optimal healing.
The use of a brace may help support an area during activity, but they have their limitations. Consult with your doctor and get their professional advice.

In brief: Sprained ankle

Once the swelling subsides and she can walk she can return to gymnastics wearing a brace.
