How to heal ankle injury?

Hi, my 12 year old daughter was kicked very hard in the ankle during a soccer game just over a week ago. The area is of course bruised, but an area about the size of a silver dollar is hard and sensitive to the touch. She is able to walk and still play soccer even. Should I be concerned or take her into the doctor?

Hello,

It could be due to minor contusion or sprain.

As of now you can use analgesics/anti inflammatory combination like aceclofenac/serratiopeptidase for symptomatic relief.

You can apply ice packs for faster recovery.

If symptoms persists better to consult an orthopaedician and plan for an MRI scan.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
