do you need crutches when you sprain your ankle?
these people at my school sprained their ankles and they are on crutches i really need to know if you need crutched when u sprain your ankle

obviously you do ! if you dont wana make the problem worse!!!!!

it all depends on the person and the sprain. I find that it is often better not to get crutches unless you ABSOLUTELY need them because if you don't really need them you will end up overcompensating when it is not necessary and will often end up injuring the other ankle. they can also become quite painful/annoying after a while. hope this helps

A bad sprain can be extremely painful and often takes longer to heal than a broken one. I've had both, and have had crutches for both. Using crutches is very problematic as well because they are hard to get used to, especially if you live in an area that isn't flat or have a lot of stairs to deal with. They put pressure on your hands and armpits and force you to use muscles in motions that you probably aren't accustomed to. Once the swelling in the sprained area goes away, the crutches can hurt more than the ankle does, but if the sprain is severe enough, then you definitely need them to help support your body weight. The best thing treatment is to keep the foot elevated and stay off of it, but if they have to go to school, then crutches (or a wheelchair) or maybe a cane (probably not a good choice for a teen) is the best way to get around until they're healed. Again, crutches are no fun and probably only used if the sprain is bad enough or they have a lot of walking they must do.

It depends on the sprain and on the person. I have had really bad sprained ankles where they instantly swelled and bruised a lot and i went back to racing with them yeah it hurt but I still raced through it so it all depends.

if they just sprained your ankle you don't need crutches, i would be different if they broke their ankles, but if they are just sprained, they don't need crutches.
