Try to identify where the pain is coming from and which movements aggravate it.

Tore a ligament in my ankle 10 months ago, had x-ray 2 weeks ago as I insisted, still having a lot of trouble with it although only arthritis is showing on the x-ray. Sometimes it feels like it freezes and I still have a bit of swelling with a limp. Getting annoyed now.

Hello Lisa,
You've taken the first important step; having the radiograph taken to rule out a fracture.

It's definitely time to start looking for someone who is conservative with ankles. If it's serious enough to still be troubling after all this time, then get annoyed enough to do something about it.

Meantime, start with our ankle exercises.

Neglected now this could trouble you for the rest of your life.
