Swollen ankle heel
Had an accident back in April, finally able to put my feet on ground and can walk. But my heel is still swollen with a bump and pains whenever I walk. Unable to understand what can reduce that swelling and will I ever be able to walk and run like earlier days. Heard a lot about cushion insoles but have no idea if I should try them or not. Please let me know what might have caused this and whether any hope is still left for any recovery
