Let it heal: Cast Boot and stay off it for 8 weeks. If pain still persists, get an MRI. The Talar dome is the part of the talus bone that articulates with the ankle joint. The talar dome is covered with cartilage. The most common site of injury is along the inside or outside edges. A bone bruise is more less a dent of the cartilage along the edge. No healing in 8 weeks- the injury is more extensive Get MRI

Let it heal!: The first thing to do is let it heal. That means: stay off it as much as possible and use a Cast Boot and cane or crutch for at least eight weeks. Then do passive range of motion of dorsiflexion and plantarflexion (move ankle up and down while sitting) for 15 minutes per day. No need to stretch for talar dome lesion. Otherwise it depends on the severity and position of the talar dome injury.

Not uncommon: First of all, most people are not perfectly symmetrical. I find that 60%+ people have some leg length discrepancy. Most can't tell when they are only 1/4" off. There are many reasons for it, including: curvature of the spine, temporary growth center interruption of the tibia or fibula from injury when young (from jumping out of a tree to an auto injury causing mild compression of growth plate)
