    Sure, that’s one way of looking at it to cure a sprained ankle. But on some cases, physical therapy, home remedies like rest, icing your foot, compression, and elevating your leg would help to gain your strength and balance again. Also, a mild to moderate ankle sprain can be cured by a compression wrap, brace, or even cast. Unfortunately, when the injury involves a fractured ankle, then surgery may be needed.

    Was it worth it? Yes
