Brief Answer:
MRI scan is needed first.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in the ankle during football can be due to a ligament tear or an inflammation. A proper diagnosis is needed first after a proper examination and investigations like MRI scan. The treatment will depend on the cause. Starting with physiotherapy without a proper treatment and diagnosis is not recommended. Do consult an orthopedician and start physiotherapy after that.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
