Can I wear shoes after spraining an ankle as long as I use crutches?

Its a minor sprain that happened two days ago and im already using crutches, im just wondering if I can wear my normal shoes

You can but it's not safe to if your foot is the least bit swollen or if it hurts to put the shoe one....it's probably best to wrap and sock it and let it be. Hope you feel better soon =)

Of course you can. As long as it doesn't put too much pressure on your ankle

Yes, you can wear your shoes, just make sure they're crutches-friendly.

If the doctors gave you a boot to wear, then wear that for a few days. If not, wear loose tennis shoes to make it comfortable. You don't want to put anymore stress and pressure on the ankle.

Ill keep the shoe loose, and not put any of my weight on it,

Good idea. I've sprained both of my ankles and when you put the shoe on... Let's just say it's no fun if the sprain is recent so make the shoe as loose as you can, but yeah, once you have it on it should be all right, just take it easy
