Re: therapy for broken ankle after surgery

I broke my ankle on May 8th, I broke all three bones and now have a metal plate and 10 screws in my ankle. I've been going to therapy for 3 weeks now and my ankle doesn't seem to be moving any further. It moves about an inch total. Is there something I can do to speed the process?
