In brief: Fracture

This is a very difficult scenario to manage.
Very often after sustaing the type of injury you describe pain is always present. In my practice i will use a brace for limiting motion and often incorporate physical therapy.

In brief: Couple

There are many medications to try if the pain has continued since the injury has healed.
You may want to consult a pain specialists or neurologist so they can test and access the source of the damage.
