Is a cast normal treatment for a sprain

I recently sprained my ankle, and the doc put my ankle in a hard cast, and on crutches for 6 weeks. I still have 5 weeks to go, but I am not sure if a cast is normal treatment for a sprain? Please help!

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
