How do I reduce my ankle/foot pain?

If your ankle/foot pain is a result of overuse or injury (like a sprain), then it might help to use the RICE method for treating soft tissue injuries. RICE stands for Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate — (1) rest the affected area, keeping it free from pressure, (2) apply an ice pack, (3) wrap the area in an elastic bandage, and (4) elevate the area above the level of your heart. All of these can contribute towards reducing your ankle/foot’s pain and swelling.
