In brief: Rhysical therapy

It really depends on how much damage was done.
For minor sprain 2-3 weeks, more serious sprains 6 weeks.

In brief: Depends on severity

The length of physical therapy depends on the severity of the injury.
Sometimes therapy can consist of a one time consultation visit to learn exercises to do at home, usually if the injury is minor; or it can go on for several months for more severe injuries or injuries to multiple areas. Continue therapy as long as you continue to see improvement.
