Recommended wait time after ankle sprain?

How long would yall wait after an ankle sprain to start adressing it with an ankle protocol?

@imDrake757 I started the flossing I think on day 3. I may explain more precisely in the video.

@Kneesovertoesguy Once you can do them pain free, how often would you do those standing ankle inversions/enversions?  And would you do them the day you go to play basketball, either before or after?

@imDrake757 I used them about twice a week. I haven’t used them in years though. I think it may be a bit much to add for someone who doesn’t have a problem. But it may be helpful for full return from ankle injury. Still unclear.

Wanting to use them to give some one the ability to do that deep inversion during sport. Is there a better protocol go developing that ability?

The band version in the video is a regression to the bodyweight version. My buddy who played in the NFL swears by it.

With fully loaded Tib and calf work + skill work in the sport, I think you’re set. But I wouldn’t stop someone from exploring it. Depends how serious the need is. An ankle struggling to get back to sport is a more serious need.
