How long do you need to wait to run on a sprained ankle?

Can you still tumble with a mild ankle sprain?
You can, but if you want your ankle to heal quickly then you really should rest it. A sprain is painful, and tumbling will hurt. Plus depending on the intensity of your tumbling, some tumbling (like back-handsprings or tucks) require the tumbler to have strong ankles. When your ankle is sprained, it is not at its full strength. So you need to be careful, because tumbling with your sprained ankle could lead to more injuries. I really suggest that you rest your...

Can you sprain your ankle from hitting it on a door frame?
Well, I believe that it depends on the type of door frame that you are reffereing to. If this particular door frame was made of spiky iron needles, then yes, I do think that you could sprain your ankle on it (and possibly break off your whole foot). Of course, you would need to test this theory to really find the answer, and I, for one, do not really want to test this kind of thing. I'll leave that part up...

You also need to not walk on it until the swelling and pain have abated. I have had this happen to me before so make sure you keep it elevated! ...

I just hurted my ankle bone it hurts so bad. My clinic doctor said it wasn't broken Why does it still hurt?
if you have sprained or rolled your ankle, it is going to hurt. alot. when i sprained mine it hurt for so long after and i was crying for the rest of the day. a sprain is actually worse than a break, because it hurts more. bones are not connected to any nerves and if it's a break, it will hurt for a bit after the injury has occurred, maybe 10 minutes after, however a sprain means that the ligaments are...

Asked in Bruises (contusions)
Why--ankle swell and black and blue?
An ankle can swell and turn black and blue from a simple twisting injury, or a sprain injury. It doesn't need to cause a fracture to bruise or swell. And because the ankle is a fairly small area, the swelling can seem pretty drastic. If you fell, ask a Dr if you need an X-ray. If no break, elevate it, put ice on (10-15 minutes on, then off), keep it elevated, try to avoid weight-bearing, and if the dr agrees, you...
