A broken wrist will result in symptoms such as pain, bruising and swelling around the wrist area. A sprained ankle is a common injury that 25,000 people experience each day, states the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS). Aleve, or naproxen sodium, is commonly used to help treat an ankle sprain, according to the AAOS. Immobilizing your wrist can help reduce swelling and also prevent further injury to the wrist.
Your wrist should be elevated above your heart whenever you are sitting down, such as while watching television. Place a thin washcloth over your wrist and then put an ice pack or bag of ice onto the cloth.
A sprained ankle occurs when the ligaments that hold the ankle bones together are stretched or torn. Aleve is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that reduces chemical signals that cause pain and swelling after an ankle sprain.


Tylenol is a pain reliever and fever reducer that reduces chemical signals in the brain that are related to the pain.
Consult your doctor regarding how often you take these medicines, especially if you have been prescribed other medications by your doctor.
When applied to the sprained ankle, it causes a burning sensation that subsides after a few minutes.
Place a pillow underneath your wrist as you sit so you can elevate the injured wrist more comfortably.
A patient should avoid walking on the ankle, ice the injury and elevate the ankle above the heart for 48 hours. A patient should follow the direction on the drug label, and take the medication as directed to treat an ankle sprain.
Although effective in controlling pain, Tylenol does not reduce inflammation related to an ankle sprain. The burning sensation is thought to reduce substance P, a chemical signal in the nerves that causes pain.


Not following proper procedures could result in a longer recovery period or, even worse, cause even more damage to the wrist. In addition to these treatments, a patient may need to take medication to reduce swelling and control ankle pain. Patients with stomach, kidney, liver or heart problems should avoid taking Aleve as it may further complicate these conditions.
Serious side effects include stomach pain, vomiting blood, coughing blood, bloody stools, clay-colored stools and dark urine. This medication is safe to use; however, a patient should always wash his hands to avoid getting capsaicin cream in the eyes or on other mucus membranes.
