Ankle sprain

Hi,
My ankle got sprained and doctor told me that calcaneofibular ligament got torn. It was 3 weeks ago. But, still swelling is there at the end of the ligament. Please help me when to do which exercises.

Hello Sai,
Some swelling may stay for a while, but is walking painful?

One wants to be sure there is no hidden fracture, or subluxated bone in the ankle. Both occur fairly frequently, but generally you'll not only have swelling, but pain.

At Chiropractic Help, type ankle exercises into the search function, and you'll find the alphabet exercises.

Good luck, write again if it's not improving.
