For immediate at-home treatment of ankle pain, the RICE method is very fruitful. Resting the ankle without putting weight on the ankle is important. Movement should be restricted and the support of a cane can be used to walk. Using an ice compress three to five times a day can help reduce swelling and pain. Wrapping the injured ankle with an elastic bandage, like an ACE bandage will be helpful. Do not wrap it so tightly that your ankle becomes numb or that your toes turn blue. Keeping the ankle elevated will also help in reducing the swelling and pain. You can also take over-the-counter drugs, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, to relieve pain and swelling. Once your pain becomes normal, gently exercise your ankle by rotating it in circles. You can also use your hands to gently flex the ankle up and down. These exercises will return your range of motion. If your ankle pain is a result of arthritis, you will not be able to heal or eliminate the pain. However, there are ways you can manage it by taking painkillers and by practicing healthy eating habits. Stretching is also helpful for the joints. Maintaining a healthy body weight will also help in lessening the stress on the joints.
