Ankle Instability

Hello, I've lived with severe ankle instability for years -- seen a couple different Sports docs. with the only option is to "live with it" or go for reconstrucion surgery because of torn ligaments. My ankle doesn't swell or bruise anymore after a "give away", there is normally only minor soreness for a couple of days -- to the point: I fell yesterday, it felt like it dislocated - without severe pain, then popped back in after I grabbed my heel. Today I can barely walk, but it's still not swollen or bruised, so I don't think it is broken. Any advise?

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
