Physical therapy is extremely helpful to reduce edema, inflammation, strengthen muscles and sometimes help with proprioceptive training.

In brief: Physical therapy

Physical therapy can play a large role in healing ankle sprains.
Not only will it make it feel better it will increase the range of motion, reduce swelling and improve strength.
