Can you have surgery for a sprained ankle or can doctors put you in a cast for one?


Hello EquineVet,

A sprained ankle doesn't require surger or a cast.  However, you should wear a wrap around it to provide some support.  All kinds of foot wraps are available at your local pharmacy and they come in different sizes and colors.  I have a foot, knee, elbow and back wraps.  These are good things to have at home all the time.  Seems like someone in the house has twisted a knee pulled a back muscle or twisted their foot.  To ease any pain and swelling you might be experiencing, try alternating cold and hot compresses.  And keep the foot elevated when you can.  Some wraps come with inserts that can be placed in the microwave and freezer so they can be used for both hot and cold.
