Forums Foot/Ankle Sprained Ankle Re: Sprained Ankle

I don’t see how it would hurt. Unfortunately I don’t have access to any Marc Pros or anything of that kind.

I haven’t gotten any X-rays or MRIs (yet), but on the chance that I may have torn a ligament or had a small fracture, does that change the healing process at all from a general sprain?

I’m iffy on seeing any doctors at this point, because if it is something more serious like a tear or fracture, and the only ‘recommendation’ is time, that time off will affect my job training, whereas, I could just be putting in the rehab time on my own.

So I was wondering if there would be any great benefit to getting X-rays or mris at this point?

Thanks for the replies!
