sprained ankle 3 weeks ago

Sprained ankle 3 weeks ago; went to the doctor; had X-rays and put in a soft cast. Almost on week 4 swelling has gone down and no pain unless I try to put weight on it. Pain and almost a tingling feeling in my heel.

I don't know what to do now. Pain on both sides of my ankle when I try to stand.

Hello Erica,
You have most likely subluxated the subtalar joint; it causes pain around the heel bone, more usually on the outside but can certainly be bilateral.

It's very simple to reduce if you can find a chiropractor who works with feet and ankles. Start hunting.

Left, it will become arthritic.
