Last year I got a ligament tear in ankle. After a year long treatment and ankle support. Still it starts paining sometimes. All doctors advice me to lose weight but if I start exercising it starts paining. How to recover the ligament completely as physiotherapy is too costly.

Dear friend .Pl assess whether your pain gets better with ankle stabilizer or not.if yes you may HV persistent tear of ligament which hasn't healed.this is not uncommon to see pts like you in our practice.you should get a consultation with joints specialist and will need MRI and proper assessment.regards dr pankaj agrawal.shoulder knee and joints specialist.

From your question I have to assume that you have not undergone Physio. If in one year you have had no physio or minimal physio and only support and oral medicine.... It's safe to say that not undergoing physio is proving costlier for you. Pls visit your physio. However there are many non weight bearing exs (swimming) to loose weight and of course proper nutrition and portion control.
