Ankle sprain

On Saturday morning..My foot slipped on some ice..and the right foot went inward. I then fell forward, down about two steps..
My foot remained sideways for a split second and I had to straighten it while on my knees and elbows..
OUCH!! My ankle has since been swollen and sore..
I can walk on it two days later..but it remains sore, weak and a little swollen. I have been putting ice on it and wrapping it..and have remained off of it for three days now..
I DID NOT SEE A DOCTOR...as I don't think I had that much pain.
Am I doing all the right things??
PS.. did not want to walk on more ice and drive with my sore foot!

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
