Top best answers to the question «Should you elevate a sprained ankle while sleeping»

Keep your leg up so that your ankle is higher than your heart. This allows the fluids from the damaged tissues that are causing the swelling to drain back into your circulation. Place a pillow under your foot when you sleep at night and prop up your foot when you are sitting or applying ice packs during the day.
