Re: sprained foot


: I sprained my foot 3 weeks ago,I am seeing a Doctor as it is a work injury. He has been of no help just trying to get me back to work and I’m willing but the swelling and pain become almost imbearable. Is there anything beside iceing that can help me? I also am a diabetic2 and I know that dosn’t help.: Tahnk you, Dena HozianHallo. Sprained foot no good. elevate, no too much weight. crutches..good..i sprain foot..cruitches good


  1. Sometimes a cast boot is the best way to treat a severe sprain. I really would have to examine your foot to give specific recommendations. If you are limited to seeing this doctor as it is a work injury, ask more questions and tell him/her that you are still hurting too much.
