Re: severe sprain

Did you get it checked to see if it's not broken?

Did you ice a lot to help keep swelling down? Compression would've helped too (basically RICE).

First thing you want to get back is flexibility and yes it's going to hurt. Ice it up after stretching and work towards getting the mobility back (also massage the muscles around the area as they tend to lock up).
