Instead of ice.what else helps the ankle to stop hurting?

You can try staying off your ankle for a couple of days and heat your ankle instead of iceing it. this might help. i did it to my leg and it felt better. ! I soaked my ankle in warm water for 10 minutes every day and it helped. I also stayed off it and avoided sports for a while. My ankle felt better but if your ankle hurts really bad, then I would go to a doctor. You could also try a roll on or gel pain reliever on your ankle. I hope my advice helps!
