Question: Hi , i injured my ankle in a squashing accident at gym ( falling of cross trainer and then my foot was squashed between paddle and the body machine! ). so it had all the symptoms like fracture
, went dr , did Xray wasnt any fracture and then 2 days later went to physio got it a severe sprained ankle
so i did RICE for the first 2 weeks i was completely bed rest
with a little mobility now i m in week 5 , all the symptoms get really really better now i m doing all of my stretching and balancing exercises but i still have swelling and a achy pain just like discomfort sensation in it. when i walked like i used to walk alot like my usual pattern i got swollen ankle
and i m afraid i will have it for future !
because now the appearance the front of my foot is not look like other foot and around my ankle and on the front of ankle seems to be firmly swollen not really big but its visible when i compared it to other foot.
what can i do ? when this pain and swelling goes away and i have my normal ankle ?
i m really concerned as i m active person and i dont want to have limited range of motion in my ankle because of bad treatment in future
