Injured my Ankle

On a off road mid week run I injured my ankle which has swelled up for a few days.

Although it is getting better now after using P.R.I.C.E (Protection, Rest, Ice, Compression Elevation), then after a day or so R.I.C.E. and then finally M.I.C.E. (Movement).

I have used the RICE method before to treat injuries but the other two are new but common sense. Protect the injury from further knocks and then Movement to help get the blood flowing around the problem area to assist with reducing the swelling.
