Some ankle sprains can take a while to heal. The key is to ease into your therapy and not push it. Bottom line is you torn one or more ligaments, which, take time to heal. I would continue to ice, especially after working out and/or physical therapy. You should be concentrating on strength of the entire ankle joint. Not just calf raises. You need to build up the muscles on the inside and outside of the ankle joint. This is typically not done with everyday weight training. Therabands, those colored "rubber bands," are an excellent choice. Your therapist should be able to give you some to use at home. Work on inversion and eversion (moving the ankle out and in). An ankle brace will def help but some of the over the counter ones are garbage. I would look into something that provides more support. Again, your therapist should be able to point you in the right direction. Hope this helps! It will get better over time, just be patient. Easier said than done, i know!
