Re: Rolled/Sprained Ankle - Help
I would definitely go see a board certified foot/ankle surgeon (not a general OS or a podiatrist). Problem with most ankle sprains is that people think its "just a sprain" and they don't get proper treatment. If ankle sprains aren't treated properly, they can be a nightmare. Most of the time, you'd be better off breaking your ankle than spraining it. The fact you still have annoying pain a year later tells me that you either need proper rehab like PT to strengthen your ankle or an MRI to see if you have something more serious going on like torn or loose ankle ligaments or a peroneal tendon injury, etc. Where exactly is the pain in the ankle? Specifically? This sounds like me and I've now had 2 ankle reconstruction surgeries. Not trying to scare you, but trying to get you to get checked out sooner than I did! Please do go get checked out ASAP!
