Torn ankle ligament

Hi there,

I have a torn ankle ligament, going into my third week after the injury. Am trying to rest as much as possible but experiencing swelling and some bruising all the way to my thigh. Is this usual in this kind of injury?

Many thanks

It is usual and you should rest your whole leg for at least two months. Physio (with infrared treatment of the ligament) and assisted movement are indicated.
