Patient : I had sprained my ankle this last summer pretty badly. I had torn ligaments and tendons throughout my foot and thankfully nothing was broken. However, its been months since the sprain yet my ankle is still swollen. It doesn't hurt at all but after a lot of walking my ankle does tend to feel stiff but some light extending of my ankle I hear a small "crack" and the tension is gone. Is there anything I can do to reduce my swollen ankle back to normal?
