I have been nursing an ankle injury (sprain/strain) for atleast 8 months now which happened whilst playing Football. I turned my ankle and heard a pop sound, and was in a bit of pain at that time.
The following day, there wasn't much swelling as you normally would see where you ankle turns into a balloon, it was only very little compared to my left ankle.
I had no pain walking on it and still had good range of motion.
Now it has been 8 months, I went to GP and they told me to RICE, Rest Ice Elevate Compress it and it should be better, (this was 6 months ago), but nothing has worked yet.
I performed rehab by myself purchasing the theraband and doing exercises etc, they seemed to help a little bit with strengthening however I went to play football last Friday, and I must've dorsiflexed too much and my ATFL seems to hurt now or atleast in that area.
I just wanted to to know what I can do now, as I have an appointment with my GP next week again, but also I wanted to know if ICING the injury this late in will have any affect? or I should completely stop using ice.
Should I use heat and soak my ankle in there? massage it? what else can I do myself to help speed up the process.
