The ankle in addition will give you gait disturbances and possible chronic pain. The answer is do the surgery. ...Read more

I hv ankle pain bcoz of ligament broken and doctor said go for surgery but surgery is very expensive. Any other treatmetnt to heal or fix ligament?

Depends: Depends on which ligaments are involved around the ankle. Typically, the lateral ankle ligaments are injured with an inversion ankle sprain. These ligaments will often heal without surgery using immobilization and possibly some physical therapy. If you are left with instability or chronic pain after the ligaments have healed, surgery could be done at that time. ...Read more
