Stretching your sprained ankle too soon will damage the ligaments and tendons. So when should I start stretch and strengthing exercises?

In brief: See below

When you can stand and walk without pain then you can start stretching and strengthening.

In brief: Sprained ankle

Recouping from a sprained ankle seems easy.
..But, in truth....It is not easy. It varies upon which type of ankle sprain you had and how severe. I would recommend you see a specialist...Let him evaluate the sprain. And, then you will have a solid answer to your problem.
