There's an easy way to remember how to initially treat a sprain, it's called the Rice Method.
R stands for rest. Rest the ankle when there's swelling.
I is for ice.
It's recommended to use ice five to 15 minutes at a time, and reapply about every hour or so.
C is for compression-- used to minimize the swelling that occurs.
And E is for elevation.
Elevate the leg above the heart-- to keep fluid from collecting in the foot.
