Ankle sprain for 6 weeks now and it's still swollen and I'm still in pain. And when I sprained it I heard a crack got a X-ray no break there any sugg?
See your doctor: Hi Peter, Sorry your ankle is hurting. The one thing I'd like to share is that an initial xray is not foolproof. You can have a break that isn't visible at first. Ongoing pain could be that your ankle needs more rest, but most physicians would recommend repeat imaging to be on the safe side. It may be a tendon rather than a bone that is injured. Good luck, hope it's better soon. ...Read more

Once you can begin range of motion this should help with swelling as well. If you are not in one I would recommend a pneumatic cam walker and ask your physician for consult for physical therapy. The therapy will be most important. ...Read more
