Default Re: Ankle pain after basketball but no swelling

how old are you?

i just went thru a hectic freshman bball season with my oldest son. a few practices into the season he started to develop severe ankle pain, to the point that he was limping and almost in tears. to make a long story short, he missed 1/2 the season but ended up having to get custom orthotics for his feet.

his diagosis was flat feet and he has tight calf muscles that keep him from having a full range of motion in his ankles. this in turn keeps him from walking properly which in turn was forcing him to almost "stomp" while running and causing pain. i was skeptical about the orthotics at 1st but they really help him out. go see a doc and get a referral to a bone specialist.
