I broke my ankle in two places 9 months ago and sprained the other one. The broken one healed ok according tot he doctor, but it still bothers me quite a bit. Both ankles can not stand anything but flats, and beign flat footed they also must have special made arches. I can't stand over an hour or walk far without causing sever pain for days. Changing shoes through out the day helps. Swimming/water aerobics is the best therapy for them. Massage seems to help, too. I heard the lymph system was damaged which causes the pooling of blood. Massaging the ankles and keeping them strethed out is a must for me or I can hardly function at all.
