The pain you experience in the front of the ankle is most likely your anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) which is still healing. It can take weeks-months to fully recover from ankle sprains depending on the severity of the injury. Rest, ice, compression and elevation is the best nonoperative treatment for this. ...Read more

The problem is that in order to heal, the muscle can't be totally immobilized as can a bone (i.e. via cast or fixation). It will take time. ...Read more
