For a sore ankle that hurts when walking/running to the point of discomfort but not outright tears. I have ice patches and a flash new ankle support/compression thingy.

1) How long do you ice it for before putting on the compression sock/support?

2) How long do you wait until swapping the compression for another ice patch?

3) Am I doing this wrong?

Ta :-)

I was told 20 mins ice/ 20 mins off and repeat when I sprained my ankle, but I think that was immediately after I injured it. I did the repeat icing until the swelling went down, then used the compression bandage during the day, when I could walk on it.

Hope you recover quickly.

I would love to run this off, I normally do! I would do if it wasn't for London looming. Too much risk :-(

Thanks Scribbler. I don't remember doing anything to it, just woke up yesterday and was hurting. Weird.

Got something to say?
