twisted ankle
    #1557377 - 05/18/03 06:29 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

hey, I got some questions about the ol' tiwsted ankle

does walking on it help, or do you need to stay off it?

how long do they usually last? will ice help heal it?

i am going hiking in like 24 hours (whooo, what luck!) any idea if i will I be okay by then?

Dude I just fucked mine up real good, I rolled it and ended up in the local emergency room. They told me to keep it above my heart and ice it every 4 hours for the first 24 hours.

Half way up my calf is 25% larger than it should be right now due to swelling and they told me it was only sprained but no radiologist was on site. I think I fucked my summer up real good, this will suck to have cast on this bitch if it comes to that.

I'm just a pussy I guess. The swelling went down and I can walk fine now, still sore but it was just a sprain, I've never had one that bad in 22 years.

Yup... just do the old rest, ice, elevation and compression for about 48 hours usually...

Walking won't help it in the first few days and often makes things sorer - you need to keep off it man! Although... for a more minor sprain it will often feel better the next day (like yours).

Once it is feeling a bit better make sure you do some calf stretches and some one foot balancing exercises (with a wobbleboard if you have one) to help the rehab process and reduce the chances of doing it again.

Try strapping it as well before you go on your hike (probably too late now huh?)

I've been skateboarding for over 6 years and I've had plenty of sprains.  They are absolutely the worst feeling thing ive had to deal with.  Usually it takes me two weeks before im completely back to normal, but on one occasion over two years ago I swear I must have torn something down there.    I gave it the usual two weeks and it felt fine until I did kickflip and BAM, it felt like I had just sprained it again: serious pain.  I waited another few weeks and the same exact thing happened, so after that I decided to give it a little longer.  Well, my ankle has never been the same since; it gets stiff a day before it rains and I can crack it really loud in the morning after I just wake up.  I really should go to a doctor, but ehhhhh....you know how it is sometimes :smile:.

Hope your's heals up nice and fast.

Mine is all black and blue still, it was 3 days before I could walk with out waddling around, it's still getting in the way.  I want it to be regular again  :confused:  I can't do anything I want with out yelling out OUCH! every few minutes from bumping the freaking thing.
