I am not able to walk because of the ligament tear on my right ankle what should I do?

Get checked: If the diagnosis of a ligament tear is documented by mri, you need to find out if it is the type that is repairable. Surgery may be an option to restore integrity in the ligament. If you are not able to walk, that typically indicates instability still. Get checked by a podiatrist or a foot/ankle orthopedist. They handle these types of conditions regularly. ...Read more

What is worse: an ankle sprain, tendon tear or ligament tear? I cant walk after 2 weeks on "sprained ankle" and am scared of diagnosis

What is worse: an ankle sprain, tendon tear or ligament tear?  I cant walk after 2 weeks on "sprained ankle" and am scared of diagnosis

See your doctor: An ankle sprain is graded on severity and symptoms. The inability to walk two weeks after an ankle sprain is concerning. Even in mild sprains, you do tear part of the ligament. In more severe sprains, more of the ligament is torn. It's possible you could have injured more than one ligament, the cartilage, or the bone which is not allowing you to walk. I recommend you see your doctor right away ...Read more
