    I had an injury in march 2017. Felt on my right hand side on ice when I ran forward.
    I can still walk, light running, but once I try anything heavier than light exercise, or walk too much, say 20 blocks in New York, the foot starts hurting on the lateral. I happen to have high arch foot. From MRI- they say they found Osteochondral lesion of talar dome; but ligaments are intact. Low grade partial tearing of anterior talofibular ligament which is mildly stretched and hyperintense. partial tearing of deep and superficial component of deltoid.

    I think it's weird the doctor told me the pain I felt is probably referred pain from the Osteochondral lesion (which is on left side of foot toward top of the foot), I think this is weird because when I read the MRi report clearly ligament is not 100% good, so why wouldn't the doctor think it's from ligament.

    I find that with swimming, and hot and cold water therapy it helps and relieves for like an entire day. This is interesting because with traditional PT I sometimes felt that area is agitated.

    I just don't understand why it would still hurt after 2 years, I've known others hurt worse and kind of recovered on their own.

    Sorry, this really hard o come close to saying why without seeing it. Suggest you get another opinion.
