Re: How long to treat sprained ankle.

It's fine to keep elevating it at night. But you can also try elevating it during the day if you get a chance. Like if you are sitting around you can put it up on another chair. Go ahead and keep wrapping it if it makes it feel better. You don't need crutches. Your basic rule of thumb at this point is to let pain be your guide. If it hurts, don't do it, otherwise, you're fine.
