Patient : I am 17 , i'm 170 cm tall and weigh 60 kgs .
The question :- i sprained my ankle a year back and probably tore a ligament.At that time i couldn't get a specialist , but my family doctor advised me to take rest and do simple exercises which never helped.eventually the swelling came down and i started playing (basketball again) , after 9 months a visited a specialist and he asked me to start physiotherapy.After i finished my physio i had a little pain in my ankle. My doctor advised an MRI and an xray. The Xray said my ankle's normal but the MRI said that there was a tear in the anterior talo fibular. the doctor said its not a complete tear but if i did physio therapy it would rejoin it. The ankle still have a little swelling and it feel very unconfortable when i walk fast.what should i do?
