In brief: Motion , ice, agilit

It can vary based on the severity of the sprain.
Typically, rehab involves range of motion (sprains tend to stiffen the affected joints), ice (to relieve swellilng), strengtheing of the joing and, in the case of leg or ankle sprain, agility and balancing work

In brief: Early mobility

Depending in severity you want to ice the area, compress to reduce swelling, elevate, and start range if motion exercises.
