If it’s just a strain, do I need to see a doctor?

If you have injured a joint and are not experiencing severe pain or marked limitation of motion, you may consider applying the basics of “RICE” (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) for a period of 24-48 hours. If pain remains persistent beyond a few days or prevents you from near normal mobility in a joint, especially the ankle or foot with weight bearing, it is best to have the injury evaluated by your primary care physician or a certified urgent care.
