ankle sprain: You need additional evaluation by your physician possibly x-rays or MRI to evaluate pain level at 10 months. If pain during pt then time to wait and get further evaluation before going on with therapy.

Have it evaluated.: An MRI may be able to identify soft tissue, cartilaginous or bony injuries.
