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: brace

A brace should do it for a grade 1 ask your dr re timing but probably 4-6 weeks gymnastics can be kind of tough on the ankles.
