In brief: Genes, health & luck

Not to put too fine a point on it, but, your ankle appears to be healing.
Actually there is very little you can do about it. The question is, just how well it heals and how long will it take. The answer is based on the extent of the initial injury. Less severe sprains can heal without much intervention, and often do. More sever sprains need more aggressive treatment for proper healing.
