Ankle Pain

I had an ankle twist playing Cricket 5 months earlier, went to Ortho and he said its a ligament fracture. I did medication for a month or more and massages and physiotherapy but its not recovered yet and still it pains when I run or whenever there is a jerk/swift movement. Inst 5 months a considerable time for recovery?

hello there,
have you had the MRI scan done at the time to see the extent of the damage to the ligament?
at times when they dont heal with conservative management , operative procedure becomes a need as well.also how much time did you give yourself to recover which means off sports for good few months as well.
regard to return to sport, Grade l sprains typically take 2-4 weeks or more to regain full mobility and for swelling to fully resolve, whereas Grade II sprains, being a little more severe, make take more like 6-8 weeks. A grade III sprain or avulsion fraction recovery time depends on several factors.

salaam. there are two options here.
1.get an MRI to make diagnosis and then go for operation as required.

most likely you will need operation because it's so many months and no relief.

2nd option skip the scan and go for an examination under full sleep. if ligament is torn, surgeon will go ahead with operation.


kindly visist me at rabbani hospital at 8 pm to 10 pm.will see your problem in detail
