        Three weeks ago we were rock climbing and she fell. Resulting in a what we thought was a sprained ankle.  She sprained this ankle before and has twisted it a couple times as well over the past 15 years.  The pain went away after a few days after the fall but today she was standing today at work in high heels and her ankle spasm’d and she fell on the ground.  Now it is pretty swollen as seen in the video.  
        She has a doctors appointment tomorrow to get checked out.  Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.  
        Currently have her submerging the foot in Ice water as suggested in M-WOD 124

          Do you have access to a marc pro or ems unit that you can use to flush the area?
          Movement is key. Move through range of motion, ankle circles both directions if possible.
          Lack of muscle activation leads to the accumulation of waste.

            If you don’t have a Marc pro then some compression and movement is good to. Voodoo band it up and walk around. The big concern here would be if you had something broken and then put it under heavy compression that could be no Bueno.

            Also wearing heels after an ankle injury might not have been the best option.

                I’d recommend seeing a PT to have it evaluated to know exactly what is going on with it.
                Addressing restrictions, what needs attention etc.
