to rule out chip fracture. You will need an ankle support and if severe, crutches or a walking shoe or cast. See an orthopedic expert.

How was the ankle injured? Mechanism of injury is also helpful. What and how you injured the ankle. Once established and no pathology on X-ray I would start a simple and very effective therapy. Contrast bath therapy will help localize the area of involvement
