I had accidentally twisted my leg due to which had swelling on my right ankle 3 months back.
I had consulted local ortho surgeon and based on his consultation and xray report he said it will cure by itsef in a month. Its been 3 months now, my swelling was gone in a month but it pains near ankle area after standing or walking for more than 20mins and cant do jogging for more than 5 mins. Sometimes I see it again swells near ankle area in such situations.
Xray report shows everything normal. Can there be any ligament issue which might not be visible in xray? My BMI index is normal and I dont have any past medical issues. What should I do?
ankle sprain can be associated with pain and instability for a proponged period. if clinical instability is noted by the surgeon surgery may be indicated. Else, developing proprioception with graded physiotherapy is indicated
