If you have an ankle injury you should wrap it in an Ace bandage and use ice to keep the swelling down. You can take Motrin or Tylenol for the pain.

Possibly a sprained ankle or a fractured ankle. It all depends on what has happened to the bones in the ankle. The best way to treat ankle injuries is to ice it regularly and if swelling in the ankle does not go down or if pain does not subside after about a week, it is probably time to see a doctor or have an X-ray of the foot done to see what the damage is.
Treatment for an ankle injury will depend on what the injury is and how severe it is. If it is a simple sprain, ice on the swelling can cause some relief. You can also take some anti-inflammatories for the pain and swelling. If it persists you should see your doctor.
it recieves the weight from the whole body along with the tibia...and reduces the weight on the ankles and feet..so it has alot to do with the ankle..if the ankle is injured then the ankle would have trouble with this weight hence creating pain
The treatment for ankle pain varies according to the type of pain and injury the person is experiencing. iceing and using supportive bandages is a great start for all minor to medium ankle pain. Splints are for more moderate pain, and in some cases crutches may be a good solution. Ibprofen is a great pain killer and will help reduce the swelling as well.
Ibuprofen is for pain or fever. It will not reduce the swelling much from an injury, as that is not an inflammatory process.
If the ankle is broken it will need to be set in plaster. If it is "merely" a sprain, support with a crepe bandage should do the trick. In both cases, pain-killers will be needed, as ankle injuries can be very sore.
Rest is the best measure. This gives the ankle time to heal. Icing and massage are also good remedies. Then as pain decrease slightly exercise the ankle with light and easy stretching motions.
No, an injury to the lateral side of your ankle may involve the fibula. An injury to the ankle on the medial side may involve the tibia.
