It's been 3 weeks since I dislocated and broke my ankle. I have 3 screws holding various bone fragments together. The cast was removed a little more than a week ago.
The Dr. wanted me to begin to move the ankle (which at this point seems like a monumental task) but no weight. I try moving it as much as I can but was wondering if anyone has any tips that may decrease the healing time, range of motion etc. Is a stretch and hold technique best?
Also is a small dose of ibuprofen to reduce inflammation a good or a bad thing? I've read mixed reviews.
My next appt. is in 3 weeks but if I can get a jump on the range I'm that much further ahead.
Thanks for any thoughts.
