ankle injury - will not heal

Landed on my ankle badly about six months back whilst trail running. There was no bruising or swelling and within a day I was walking ok.

Since then though not been able to run on it - everytime i do run the ankle feels (and sometimes does) like its about to give way. I have very localized pain (to touch) on the inside of my ankle but also have a deep ache mainly on the front of my ankle which i feel all day and am very concerned about I had an X ray which was clear.

i've been seeing a physio who believes its stretched ligaments and who has been massaging the whole ankle area intensely but has only managed to make the symptoms a lot worse. Not too sure whether hes doing more than good. But he does say that there's nothing damaged. should i get a scan anyway?

Any ideas?

Malleoloc for lateral ankle instability. Designed to prevent inversion and eversion. Malleoloc does not restrict plantar and dorsiflexion. Excellent for sports use.
