I fractured the one bone in my left ankle and was put in a cast. It is coming off on 26/8/16, after 7 weeks.
I have minimum pain by now, and the pain doesn't feel the same as in the beginning. Now it just feel stiff and uncomfortable, so I am thinking the bone has mended.
I am not weight bearing yet and are on crutches.
Will anything bad happen if I tighten my calf muscleto start strengthening it? I also vigorously move my toes around, also to build strength.
I guess my question is - are there any benefits to this?
I cannot see a physiotherapist, for various reasons, so will do my own rehab (I did my own rehab on my knee a few years ago when I severely damaged it. I am totally pain free and have full motion, so I am positive I can do my own ankle too).
Shall I do the same with my ankle and let me be guided by the pain, while doing the exercises?
Thank you for your insights.
