Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You seem to have developed a ligamentous laxity in your ankle region due to repeated twisting injury. I will like to see your relevant stress x rays of your ankle region to look for any instability, also a mri ankle may be required. You can continue with brace and physical therapy till the time you get these investigations done after which I can see and advise you accordingly. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.
