I rolled my left foot under to the outside

I rolled my left foot under while doing a thai boxing workout the other day.
It may be still be weak from tripping off a curb in boots about 10 years ago (I’m 37 now.) Anyway, outside of taking it easy & icing it as much as possible to reduce the swelling, what else can I do to speed up recovery?
Any exercises?
I can walk ok after 3 days.
It’s sore when I first step on it after sitting for a while.
It is still very painful to put any weight on it at an angle if it’s leaning to the outside.
Any comments or help is much appreciated.

    Depending on what grade the sprain is, it may take several days or several weeks to recover. I am constantly puzzled why patients want to exercise an injured foot or ankle when the sensible thing to do is to rest the part and allow it to heal. The entry level Rest Ice Compression and Elevation (RICE) always applies and a good lace up type ankle brace (like a Swede-O or ASO) can be useful. If this is not helping then a visit to a podiatrist or orthopedist is indicated and possibly immobilization in a cast boot would help.
