Any suggestions on how to make it heal better? I was doing some drills and as I moved back I stepped on a ball and fell on my ankle. I iced it for 45 minutes, then put some heatpacks on it but what now? It's really hard to walk so I'm using crutches. I know it's not broken, but there's slight swelling and the only part that hurts is the bone on the outer side of the ankle. Also, does anyone know how long I should be out from playing tennis? Thanks for any advice.
