We understand the inconvenience of your complaint
Swollen ankles generally occur due to trauma or collisions that occur in the area, sprains / sprains or disruption in the muscles around the ankles.
Other possibilities such as disorders of the kidneys and heart can also cause swelling in the legs but related to this disease requires further evaluation and examination.
Regarding the best treatment options for your condition, a direct examination is needed to determine the cause. The best therapy is given based on the underlying causes of complaints that are felt.
Not necessarily the cause of swelling in your ankles is caused by inflammation. Therefore, we suggest that you carry out consultations and discussions directly with orthopedic specialists to get more complete information.
To reduce swelling and pain, do light activities, avoid too long sitting or walking, compress with cold water on the area of pain. The medicines you take can also reduce pain and swelling in your ankles. The need for physiotherapy depends on the medical considerations of the doctor who examines you directly and knows your condition thoroughly.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
