I was walking when I sprained my ankle. I was just wondering if I should wear an ankle brace or not during the healing process?

Yes. Hello, In addition to ICE, rest and nsaids, I also recommended protected weight bearing to all my patients with ankle sprains. Its important to allow the ligaments in the area to heal without further disruption to their integrity.
Ankle injury. Let your parents know. It doesn't sound like you have been evaluated for this. If you have pain or impairment in function - then would recommend medical assessment to determine degree of sprain & to rule out fracture. In the meantime use R.I.C.E. (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation).
