When can I take off the splint for sprained ankle?

Talk to Dr. I would recommend that you discuss this with your doctor.
Ask your doctor. Ankle sprains vary in severity and if you were put into a splint it may require anywhere from 1-3 weeks depending on your type of sprain. Always consult with your doctor before removing a splint.
