In brief: Popping with sprain

One of the hardest things to do after an ankle sprain is to eliminate the swelling.
Deep swelling can linger for an average 4 months post sprain, and this can cause a popping sensation. I like RICE, especially twice daily 15 minute ice packs and once daily contrast bathing. If the popping does cause pain, then definitely see a specialist.
