Ankle sprain
Had a accidental fall and sprained my ankle. There was swelling and pain. Visited ortho doctor after 1 week, he told it's a grade 2 ankle sprain and didn't recommend x-ray as he ruled out fracture. After 2 weeks m feeling better there is very mild pain, but my ankle still stays little  swollen. Although it has reduced a bit but there is still some swelling. Should i start ankle rehab exercises to reduce swelling.i m using ankle brace for support and taking anti inflammatory medicines as prescribed by doc.
