Using elastic bandage to wrap your ankle.
Wearing a brace to support your ankle.
Elevating your foot with pillows while resting or sleeping. This will help reduce swelling.
Taking ibuprofen or acetaminophen to manage swelling and pain.
Getting plenty of rest and not putting weight on your ankle.
It’s also helpful to apply ice to the injured area as soon as you can to reduce swelling.

In my opinion you should apply (ice , elevation , compression )also use anti inflammatory
You need to move you fingers along bones to check for any fracture , any blue, black coloration or lose if sensation you notice means you take her to the hospital either she wants or not

X-ray will be quick just to be safe

Good Luck
