Dear Neels

In my experience ankle injuries can be very frustrating to recover from, especially complicated ones with fractures and ligament damage. It is very important to continue doing physio at least once a week and do all the exercises given to you. I find that ice can be a great help, even better when used with alternatively with heat. There are several ice compression bandages that work well on the market. Ask your physio for more information.
