Hello.. Well..because of the splint what happens is your ankle is immobilised for a period of 2 weeks...as a result of which there will be definitely tightness and restriction for which you need to do ankle exercises.. physiotherapy..this will gradually improve the movements and then it will be back to normal...thank you
