Sprained ankle, avulsion injury, chipped nevicular bone. On tubi-grip. Treatment?

Hi there, I sprained my ankle and chipped the nevicular bone in my foot (avulsion injury) when descending stairs over a week ago. I have tubi-grip on my foot 24hours a day but received no further advice from emergency medical staff e.g. prognosis , pain-killers and rest / exercise periods. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I think you need to take minimum 4 week rest and after that you can start doing exercises. You will need to do warm water fomentation and physiotherapy after this. There is no specific exercise except ankle movements.

I severely sprained my ankle and fractured ankle bone in foot five weeks ago . I was in non weight bearing plaster cast for three weeks. I was not very good about using crutches and was walking tip toe which didn t hurt. Cast has been off for one week now and I can t bend my foot to walk. It is also very painful to put pressure on heel. I am in a brace now but still can t walk on foot besides on my toes. I start pt Thursday. What are your thoughts?

My daughter has a severely sprained right ankle. She sprained it on Sunday, went to the hospital emergency room, had an x-ray indicating NO broken bones. However, after R.I.C.E. Since Sunday, her ankle is still swollen, bruised on both sides of the ankle and she cannot put weight on it. Should she see a physician and see if she can get an ankle boot to help avoid more injury?

I have a 15 year old severe brachial plexus injury . Surgery was performed almost a year after the accident due to the doc on call the night I was rushed to ER decided to wait and see. I ended up having surgery to remove scar tissue and try to fix any nerves and nerve roots intact. It was noted that I have avulsion of 4 nerve roots. I have developed CRPS Type II on top of the awful pain from the BP injury among several other injuries. I recently found out that I have full thickness scarring in the brachial plexus and my ROM has declined significantly. My question is this. Is there any way a doctor would consent to a surgery to remove the scar tissue again to help relieve some of the horrific pain I have and possibly improve ROM. I know removing scar tissue is a temporary step as it will grow back. But if it gives me even a few weeks/months of decreased pain, I would do it in a heartbeat . As it stand now I am almost debilitating pain 24 hours a day. My pain meds, 3 SGNB gmhave done nothing. Acupuncture , massage, biofeedback, guided imagery, TENS unit, chiropractor etc have done nothing to help. They may have made it worse.
