Sprained ankle while adventure racing

Hi Gary,
I sprained my ankle just over four weeks ago during an adventure race and continued to race for a further 2 hours to finish with my team.

I have not been able to run on the ankle but have been back on the bike quite a bit since then. The ankle is still a little swollen and is tender to walk on first thing in the morning. Does a sprained ankle require any specialist intervention or will it heal just as well without? I guess I am saying “should I get it looked at”


Also are there any good exercises that I can employ to aid recovery and strength?
