Default Rolled My Right Ankle

Tonight ... pretty bad, playing pickup.

I haven't had an injury like this since my 1st game of my senior year of HS.

Hurts brutally bad, and I've never been someone prone to injuries and I play alot.

Just very disappointing. As I type my leg is elevated and I'm icing the hell out of it. Hopefully I won't have to visit the doctor 2mmorow. That would just kill me.

Having felt like my sneakers were a bad luck charm, having played in them for the 2nd time, I ditched them and gave them to someone in the locker room.

I don't know what caused the injury, whether I came down on someone's foot, landed wrong like on the side of my foot or something but all I remember was I went up in the air on weak side help to block a shot and came down really bad and immedietly fell down, and then eventually had my buddy help me into the locker room.

Anyone had any ankle injuries here as of late, or in general? Hearing some fellow ISH'ers stories might be cathartic in some ways.

If you don't already know my story you don't want to... it's far from inspiring

You should be back in a few weeks man sweat it. Just keep resting and icing until the inflammation starts to subside then do the heat thing. Injuries suck this time of year cus it's so damn cold. Stuff heals way better in the spring/summer months.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, bro ... it means alot. I was able to limp back home and drive on it, I hope that means it isn't too bad. But it's gotten more sore as the nights went on (as expected) ... I've done nothing but pop advils and drink beers to dull the pain.

Yeah, sucks that it came in winter. I'm lucky I did it on a week of paid vacation, but if I have to miss work I will be disappointed.

I just hope it's not anything serious.

You could be moving on the court in a week. I rolled my ankle pretty badly in the summer, and it honestly took almost 3.5-4 months before it completely felt hundred percentage to the point where I didn't need to wear an ankle brace.

Ankle sprains are a killer. Problem is most try to come back too quickly and don't let it heal. Ultimately, it can take 3-6 months for a sprain to fully heal depending on the Grade.

You can try using a brace but it is like putting a bandaid on a big laceration, gotta do the other things to help it heal.

My concern would be any type of avulsion fractures, specifically at the base of the 5th metatarsal. If you want, Google the "Ottawa Rules" and see if any applies to you.

If it is not fractured, nor a Grade3 sprain, i like to use non-weight movement based activity to speed healing along with minimal ice and some other techniques that you would not be able to do by yourself. Good luck and let it heal.

I think I am lucky when it comes to ankles... I always end up just spraining my foot (I don't even know if it's considered a sprain) I think my ankles must be like indestructible or something cus I see guys do the same thing as me and they sprain their ankles and are out for weeks... and I'll only be out for like a week if that with no pain anymore.

Watch next time I play after my hamstrings heal I will probably sprain my ankle after saying all that

Thanks for all the support fellas. I'm going to give it one more day of rest and if it isn't better by tommorow, I'm going to get X-rays.

I rolled my ankle too. It was 2 weeks ago in our final home game. Oddly enough I didn't feel any of the real pain until I got home. So far it's still hurtin', but it is considerably easier to put my sneakers on now, used to hurt like a *****.
