In brief: Consult PT
It would be hard to answer this question w/out knowing what ligaments are involved.
Your best point of reference would be to consult a physical therapist. There are a lot of internet resources that can be used, but beware of picking a wrong treatment plan, since you may have a complex problem that on line sources will be unlikely to address.

In brief: Depends
A typical ankle sprain therapy protocol is usually sufficient for most ankle sprains.

Prolotherapy injections can improve stability and pain control in the rehabilitation of the ankle. Occasional Taping and high top work boots may be advisable for working or hiking on uneven ground
