Ankle sprains

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

In icy conditions it is something that can happen easily and while painful an ankle sprain is tolerable.

We show you how to handle it, in this week's Neighborhood Health Watch.

Dr. John Clay is treating ankle sprains.

These are often accompanied by pain, swelling, possible instability and inability to bear weight.

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

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