Sprained ankle Rice is not the fast way to heal your ankle.
RICE is the first aid response to an injury. It is designed to minimize additional damage and give the person relief from pain. It has nothing to do with getting your ankle healed and is NOT a rehab method.
RICE stands for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.
It is the most conservative thing you can do after an injury.
If you want to get better fast and you don’t want to miss out on your plans, you need an active rehab program.
The rehab program should reduce swelling fast, restore range of motion and strengthen the muscles that support your ankle.
And, one more thing. It should repair the nerve damage that occurred when you sprained your ankle. The nerves that were damaged tell your brain the position your foot is in and if they are not repaired and re-calibrated, medical science says you will most likely suffer a more serious sprain within 12 months of your first injury.
Here’s the program that I recommend:
If you don’t have torn ligaments or a fracture you can realistically get back to your life within 5 days.
Take a look at it and let me know if you have any questions.
