Aircast or ace bandage for sprained ankle?
Sprained my ankle pretty badly should I buy an Aircast brace or ace bandage? What are the benefits of each? If it matters I will be on crutches and not putting any weight on my ankle

Ace bandage for now. It is much lighter when lifting it up. When you need a boot, get aircast, it help you walk and your ankle will heal faster once you can put any weight in it. For now use an ace bandage.Source(s): Learned about injury a couple years back

I would go with an ace bandage. Put ice on it for 24 hours and you don't need to be on crutches but if it is causing extreme discomfort I would. If it still hurts I would call your doctor :)Source(s): I have a detached ligament that causes me to sprain my ankle a lot
