I hurt my ankle over a year ago playing football. It was badly sprained and the bone had a deep bruise.  Long story short a year later and after regular treatment, it's still bothering me a lot.  The Dr. said the next step would be to get a Cortisone shot in the ankle to reduce inflammation and to help it heal. 
Has anyone had this done before? Did it help?

Yes and Yes. I had one back in November in my knee for patella-femoral syndrome. It wasn't like "night and day" different, but it helped.
Just don't pull a Lance Harbor and get addicted because the steroid masks the pain and can give you a false sense of confidence. Keep at the PT. Best of luck.
