poorly anckles

8 months ago i was in a car crash and i took all the impact on the passenger side. my legs were banged about and then they were crushed between the center colum and the door i had x rays and fortunately there were no breaks or fractures, but i couldnt lift them or put any weight on them, A and E sent me away with no help to walk and told me to take pain killers and rest my dad and boyfriend carried me out of the hospital when i finally got to see a physio she said there wasnt alot she could do gave me some simple exersises, and treated my anckles with 3 sessions of ultra sound and told me that in time the swelling would dissapear and i would regain the range of movement i lost but now it is 8 nearly 9 months on and iv seen very little improvement my anckles are still swollen and painfull i cant wear high heals as it hurts and i only have to slip trip or suprise my anckles with a movement a wasnt ready for and i end up in serious pain im getting very deppressed and dont know where to turn for the best i cannot afford private medical help si there any thing you can advise me to do? have i been treated rightly? and will they ever get better....

Lined with soft fabric on both sides, this ~2mm thick SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is an excellent cushion to help relieve the burning sensation and discomfort of the five metatarsal heads of the foot (the ball-of-foot) by protecting the ball of foot from repeated friction and abrasion with the shoes.
