    It depends on how bad the sprain is.

    And do you think it's a sprain, or do you know it's a sprain? You're not really qualified to determine what it is, so I would get it checked out if I were you.

    And also, don't expect your ankle to feel the same way again once it heals. There's going to be a little pain in there for quite a while, no matter what you do. My ankles never really felt the same after spraining them. I lost a lot of lift and explosiveness after a bad sprain on my right ankle, and it took several months before I could do things like dunking in basketball again. I didn't work out at the time, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have felt comfortable squatting for quite some time after either.

    Most people sprain their ankle's repeatedly because they don't deal with the initial problem right away. Ice right away, then go to the Doc's office and then to physio.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Go to the doctor's right away, you need x-rays.

    When I sprained my ankle I went to the doctor and he told me I wouldn't be able to walk (training was an entirely different creature) for 10 days. It later turned out that that doctor was an idiot and my ankle was broken. But the point is it will be a while and you should only listen to a doctor, not a bunch of people on the internet.

    Odd that they gave you an air split. Air splints do not properly get rid of the inflammation in the affected area.

    How about pullups and cable rows.
