I jumped in a pool (not knowing how deep it was) about six months ago. And I did something to my ankle. It remained very swollen for about a month and a half. It has been pretty sore ever since then. When ever I rotate it now it grinds and pops.
Hello Jennalin. It's important to get an X-ray of your ankle and, if you can afford it, a scan. X-rays of the ankle often miss a fracture.
Whether you have fractured a bone in your ankle, or merely displaced a bone, after six months it certainly needs attention.
Some chiropractors treat feet, others not. Ask.
The good news: imagine if you had dived in. You'd probably be in a wheelchair right now. Shallow water is very dangerous.
