  • Treatment
  • Treatment for a sprained ankle depends on the severity of your injury. The treatment goals are to reduce pain and swelling, promote healing of the ligament, and restore the function of the ankle. The doctor might recommend Medications, Devices, or Therapy. In rare cases, surgery is performed when the injury doesn't heal or the ankle remains unstable after a long period of physical therapy and rehabilitative exercise. Surgery may be performed to: 1-Repair a ligament that won't heal. 2-Reconstruct a ligament with tissue from a nearby ligament or tendon.
