Any tips for ankle sprain treatment

I sprained my anlke like 11 days ago. The swelling is almost gone now but I have to take pain killers at night for the last few days. Was just wondering if anyone had any tips on how to make it heal faster (some foods, vitamins..?).

Thanks.

Julia

Re: Any tips for ankle sprain treatment

Thanks. I'm a bit freaking out because the place where I live doesnt really have real doctors and I haven't even bothered to go to any clinics or get an X-ray, my friends all agreed this doesnt look necessary. But I was expecting it to heal by now.

Any ideas how long is it gonna take to heal completely? Is it normal that I only get pain at night, and I have to take pain killers to get a decent rest? Normally its 3-4 tablets of tramadol with 2 tablets of panadol.

Is it ok to do light walking, swimming or strength training exercises while its still healing?

Re: Any tips for ankle sprain treatment

could take up to two weeks for pain to go away, make sure you elevate as well. Pain should be there for a couple days.
