How long does it take for a moderate ankle sprain to recover? I have had a history of foot and ankle problems over the past 20 years.
4-6 weeks. Recovery times vary from person to person but 4-6 weeks is average. It is very important to rest and immobilize your ankle at first for proper recovery and ligament healing. I recommend you see a podiatrist for evaluation and treatment.
Ankle sprain. Sounds like you have recurrent ankle sprains and you are in need of ankle stabilization repair which is surgical. I recommend you see a board certified foot and ankle specialist. Good luck.
4-6 weeks. The need for rest and immobilization is important for lower grade sprains. Higher grade sprains or chronic instability from previous injuries may require an MRI and possible surgical intervention.
