I had a bad fall on ice in December. My ankle looked broken, but it was badly sprained with ripped tendons and I needed a cast, physio and crutches for 3 weeks. Now I can walk normally again, but I'm afraid to do anything with more ballistic energy. It still swells by evening and I don't yet have full movement. I've been signed off physio and she said to slowly work up to more energetic exercise, but for now continue with the stretching exercise and balance cushion. I don't want to damage my ankle again when I know it has a weakness, but would like advice on how to work up to it again (when the ice and snow goes away! It scares me now!) anyone had any experience with recovery from ankle damage?
