Ligament tear

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.

Hi You really have to strengthen your ankle and foot muscles, especially evertor muscles. You learn these exercises from good therapist once and you have to work on those muscles at home by yourself.

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.
