Re: I rolled my left foot under to the outside

Depending on what grade the sprain is, it may take several days or several weeks to recover. I am constantly puzzled why patients want to exercise an injured foot or ankle when the sensible thing to do is to rest the part and allow it to heal. The entry level Rest Ice Compression and Elevation (RICE) always applies and a good lace up type ankle brace (like a Swede-O or ASO) can be useful. If this is not helping then a visit to a podiatrist or orthopedist is indicated and possibly immobilization in a cast boot would help.

The built-in arch stabilizer provides support for greater stability.
