Sprained Ankle

January 24th, I sprained my ankle and saw an orthopaedic doctor the following day and he said it was just a severe sprain and should be back to normal in a couple weeks. Now, it is basically back to normal except for some very mild pain and tightness in some positions which I expect. The abnormal thing is that it is still swollen compared to my other ankle (around 100% larger). By swollen, I mean that the lateral malleolusis is larger and it is not soft but very hard. It is almost like more bone has added to it! So my question is if this is normal or should I go back to the doctor and have it checked out? (I am a 22 year old male and did this while playing racquetball) Thanks!

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
