When can my toddler start exercising after the ankle sprain she had recently?

If your child has a minor ankle sprain, he may begin ankle exercises as early as 48 hours after the injury. These exercises include moving the ankle through its natural range of motion by bending the ankle backwards, forwards, inwards, and outwards. To improve balance, it is important to stand on the injured leg. Light weight-bearing and easy walking helps healing.The injury can take more than 2 weeks to improve. Complete healing can take as long as 10 to 12 weeks.
