Ankle sprain

I am suffering from left ankle sparin from last two month. I have taken the treatment from dr and physiotherapy as well, but still 10-20% sweeling is remaning. No such pain in the ankle but it feels when walk without sports shoes or with sports shoes for a long time and if drive the car for long time. In the morning when i get up from the bed, sweeling feel around 4-5% only then it increase when i start walking. No hair line fracture found in the x-ray. Please suggest me what should i do. Qyery: 1. Can i start ankle strengthening excercise? 2. Is still i need to use ice bag/hot water treatment? Regards, Ankur
