The first thing that almost everyone does when they sprain their ankle is to head off to the ER….
And it is the biggest waste of money I’ve ever seen.
The ER has changed.
You used to get fixed up and sent home to heal.
Now, they simply make you wait for hours to see the doctor and charge you hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars for the privilege.
And it doesn’t matter if they do anything for you or not.
Their contribution to your recovery is to tell you to call your orthopedic doctor the next business day.
Thank you for playing!
Most sprained ankles don’t require an ER visit.
I’ve put together a sprained ankle quiz to help you figure out how bad your ankle is and what steps to take next.
You can take the quiz right away at the following link:
