Is cryotherapy effective for acute management of ankle sprain? Evidence-based answer: Cryotherapy in combination with exercise may be slightly more effective than other treatments for acute ankle sprain (SOR: B, systematic review with significant study heterogeneity). Intermittent cryotherapy may be more effective for pain relief than standard cryotherapy during the first week (SOR: B, single RCT).
