Sprained ankle

Hello, I had a sprained ankle 8 months ago and even after 3 months of physical therapy I still feel some pain in certain movements. What you recommend?
Thank you

The most common cause of continued pain after a routine ankle sprain is an injury to the articular surface known as  Osteochondritis Dissicans (OCD), that is undetected on the original X-rays. I would therefore recommend repeat exam by your treating doctor, with updated x-rays and an MRI if needed.
