I sprained my ankle this weekend. And not just a sort-of-ouchy-sprain but a fall-on-your-face-and-burst-into-tears kind of sprain. But my approach to a sprained ankle (and any acute injury) is a bit different AND will get you back to pain-free faster. Whether you’ve sprained your ankle or not, this is a must-listen so you have the info the next time you need it!

On today’s episode, I cover...

  • What swelling actually is and why it’s not a bad thing
  • Why RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) is old news
  • Exactly what I did that is allowing me to walk without pain three days after a seriously dramatic ankle sprain
  • And how you can handle your next injury (without being afraid!)
