A 18-year-old female asked:
I got my ankle sprained about 3 months ago. i had therapy but it still hurts, i can't do some movements or wear certain high heels. what should i do?

Get an mri: I would expect the sprain to have healed more fully at this point. An MRI should be performed to evaluate for any ligament and cartilage damage.

Icing.: Keep icing the ankle. Keep up with your physical therapy strengthening exercises. They can take 3-6 months.
