In brief: Acupuncture
Acupuncture has never been scientifically studied to determine if it helps a sprained ankle.
That said, many people find relief from a variety of musculoskeletal injuries with acupuncture. Acupuncture is a safe treatment, and may help relieve the pain associated with an ankle sprain injury.
