Twisted Ankle

Sit down to take your weight off the ankle, elevate the ankle if possible, and apply ice or a cold pack onto the area of your ankle that is swollen or most painful. Take an over the counter medication for pain and discomfort according to the package directions.  If the swelling persists or the pain is not tolerable, get a ride to OSF PromptCare with assistance so you do not walk on the ankle.
