Ankle injuries are often thought of as sports injuries, which are common among men between age groups of 18-24. Half of all ankle injuries, occur during athletic activity. The most common ankle injuries are sprains and fractures, which involves ligaments and bones in the ankle. You can apply first aid for an ankle injury with R.I.C.E- rest, ice, compression and elevation. After the ankle injury, rest is important as you should not put any weight on the affected leg and complete rest is required so that there are no further complications. An ice compress is important to help slow or reduce the swelling and provide a numbing sensation that will ease the pain. Then wrapping the injured ankle with an elastic bandage or off-the-shelf compression wrap will help keep it immobile and supported. By elevating the injured ankle to at least the level of your heart will reduce swelling and pain. It is important not to put any weight on the ankle until a doctor evaluates the condition. The doctor may order an ankle X-ray to determine whether there are any broken bones. This will help the doctor determine whether surgery is needed. The complications in the ankle injuries includes fractures and it takes at least six weeks for the bones to heal as doctor will probably ask you to keep weight off the ankle during that time so the bones can heal. If it is just a sprain or a tendon injury, resting the ankle is important till the swelling goes down for about one week.
