Torn ligament in ankle

11/05/2008

Question:

I TORE MY LIGAMENTS IN MY ANKLE 3 MONTHS AGO I HAD TO WEAR A BRACE AND A BOOT AND I STILL CANNOT WALK RIGHT WHAT CAN I DO

Answer:

Thanks for the question! I would suggest that you go back to your doctor who diagnosed you with torn ligaments. It sounds like you would benefit from some physical therapy with an emphasis on gait training.
Hope this helps!
