Ankle sprains

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - The incredible run of weather we are having means more weekend warriors are out there doing things they may not normally do.

That can lead to injuries you aren't prepared for.

Dr. John Clay is helping his patients with ankle sprains.

An ankle sprain will include pain, swelling, possible instability and inability to bear weight.

Treatment includes "RICE" therapy which involves rest, ice, compression and elevation.

See your doctor if you are unable to bear weight or your ankle feels unstable.
