Time heals all : Wounds. Depending on the severity of the sprain 10 weeks is not out of the ordinary for a moderate or severe sprain. Assuming x-rays were performed to rule out a fracture, then if pain persists an MRI can be performed to rule out or provide the extent of the soft tissue injury.

Not abnormal: If the pain is not improving at all, it may be time to obtain an MRI scan to rule out the possibilty of cartilage damage, or possibly a tendon tear. If you are steadily improving, then just continue with the brace and therapy.
