Dear Dr. Yukti, In mild cases, conservative treatment should be undertaken. This may mean crutches, ankle splint, braces or even a walker boot. Physiotherapy is key to rehabilitate the ankle. Surgical treatment may be considered if there is persisting symptoms despite conservative treatment or for an unstable syndesmosis in cases of a high ankle sprain.
