Post immobilization for a fracture, physiotherapy is utmost important for getting back complete functional recovery. Just hot fermentation is not enough. Full range of motion of ankle, proprioceptive training, ankle strengthening and agility training are very important.

Post cast removal, physiotherapy is essential. Only doing hot fomentation will not suffice. It is advisable to consult a physiotherapist for treatment of the pain & swelling.Also as ankle is a weight bearing joint, strengthening & proprioceptive exercises are also crucial for long term relief. It is important to avoid prolonged standing, using heels & walking on undulating sirfaces. If the swelling & pain aggravates with walking it is advisable to use ankle wrap or support on weight bearing.
