Our expert says:
Damaged ligaments generally take about 6 weeks to heal. For a grade 1 tear, the ligaments are actually just over stretched and may have some microscopic damage but are not actually torn. It is not necessary to use crutches but an ankle brace or protective strapping is a must. For proper treatment and advice on rehabilitation of the joint I suggest you visit a physio.
