In brief: Ankle Sprain
Typical interventions include rest, ice, compression, and elevation of the injured area.
Stay off the foot completely for at least a week. Vitamin c & beta-carotene may help the body make more connective tissue; bromelain may decrease inflammation. Depending on specific symptoms, homeopathic remedies such as arnica, ruta, and bryonia can help. Also, turmeric may help reduce swelling.
