Following some ankle sprain treatment steps will get you back to the field, sport or work that you need to get back to.

Use of supportive shoes and inserts will prevent pain from reoccurring. Stable shoes prevent twists of the foot. This is particularly important when hiking or walking on rough ground. Also, if a shoe fits poorly, the muscles will have to work harder. Overworking your foot and leg muscles can cause some sharp aches and pains.
