Did you just sprain your ankle? I did recently. It hurts! Ankle sprains occur so often that sometimes it can be easy to overlook helpful treatment strategies to accelerate the healing because, well, they will heal on their own, right?
Ankle sprains are the most common lower extremity injury in sport. The most common is an inversion sprain where the foot rolls under the inside portion of the ankle. There are eversion sprains and diastasis (aka "high ankle") sprains, but these are less common.
