Ligament sprain on my ankle? Ice and immobilize?

Needs evaluation. Partially torn ligaments (spains) may heal satisfactorily with rest and immobilization. The complete tear of the ligament, however, may need surgical repair to restore the stability of the joint. It is therefore important that a trained medical professional examine the ligament soon after the injury as a neglected complete tear may not be repairable at a later date.
Sprain. Yes - but as said see your podiatrist for an evaluation to see how much damage has been done.
