I went to free clinic about 10 days after I sprained it and the swelling wasn't getting any better. I was given the brace, an x-ray was done and was told it wasn't broken. I also have some pain on my bone and some nerve pain. That wasn't addressed at all.
I don't have insurance, and MO Medicaid it a pain in the butt, even to get for my kids. I'm afraid the free clinic won't take me seriously and prob. doesn't even have an orthopeadist on staff. Is there anything I can do at home for the pain and are ankle exercises recommended at this point? Are there orthopaedists who work with their patients financially??
