In brief: Ankle braces

You can try compression stockings or ankle braces to help with swelling.
It is important to determine what is causing the swelling. Is it worn out shoes or do you pronate too much and causing stress on your ankles. If you have flat feet, you need a stability running shoe and try superfeet otc inserts. If you are not getting better than you should stop running and seek help.
