I think I have a minor sprain in my ankle. How long will it approximately take to heal?

It hurts a little when I walk on it and yesterday i went for a 4.5 mile run and i think i might have rolled it not badly though because it didn't swell at all and it only hurts a little and I was just fine for the rest of the night and i went home and biked a few miles and it didn't hurt at all yesterday. It's just been starting to hurt walking to my classes.

The healing process of a sprain ankle takes about four weeks to six weeks. You can rest your ankle by not walking on it. Visit http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=a00150 for more details.

Generally 6-8 weeks to heal. Remember RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) will help.
