I had a basketball game, and someone landed on my leg. Now, I have a grade one sprained ankle. I have a basketball game next week. I want to play, and I am wondering whether my ankle will heal soon? Or if I want to play, should I need to use crutches for a bit? Currently, I am taking tablet Melatonin, Concreta, and Lovan.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Crutches are advised if you cannot be able to beat the weight. If it is the case, then you will be having more than a grade 1 sprain. I will advise you walk without crutches, ice the area, elevate and use a compression bandage. Also, take anti-inflammatory tablets.
