    sprained ankle

    So, I sprained my ankle on the 23/01/06 (monday) while playing basketball, I jumped down and it sprained. Anyhow i continued playing basketball, and I never applied any ice too it after training or days after. Anyways on friday (4 days later) i had soccer training, and i started to feel pain when i kicked a soccer ball. I thought the ankle problem was nothing too serious as heaps of people sprain ankles. Anyways I then had a soccer game or training on the Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and then Sunday was my final hitout before i knew something was wrong. I started applying ice after the last friday training and on saturday i applied ice and when i came to the game, i felt better but after the game it wasnt so good. Since then Ive put ice each day after the sunday game for 2-3 days.

    My pain wasnt that bad whilst running BUT whenever i kicked a ball with my left foot, it would shoot out with pain. Now its been a week and afew days since i stopped running, I feel my ankle is feeling much better HOWEVER it doesnt seem to be 100%. When I rotate it hard enough, I still feel some pain (4/10 painful). My question is how long will it take for a full recovery OR have i totally ****ed it up and its a chronic issue now? What can i do too make it feel better. Thank you for your time.

    Re: sprained ankle

    Ankle sprains take several weeks to heal (even mild ones). You should really take some time off from sports (at least kicking and stuff) for at least a week or two to rest the ankle. It sounds like you should be okay if you take the time off now to let it heal. Just remember that even though you "can" play through the pain, it doesn't mean that you should. Take some time off, get healed up, then you'll be good to go.
