Sucks! It seems to never fully recuperate.

I'm surprised by so many no's. I would have thought everyone has.

Why don't you just ask, have you ever played as a child, or been active in life?

Yes. I have lived long enough to have sprained, twisted & broken my ankle. No fun.

if you answered no, your not being active enough.

When you play sports, it's bound to happen. Yes, I've sprained both ankles.

Multiple times, mostly from playing basketball. One time it was pretty bad and I was on crutches for a few weeks after.

Twisted, yes, thankfully no worse than that. I'm a wimp when it comes to pain.

What type of question is this

10/26/14 12:21 pm

I believe its a question about sprained ankles.

I had a pretty bad one, I was running and didn't see a ditch in the ground my ankle turned way too far. For a week I walked like a limping animal, at the slowest pace

Right ankle probably 5 times over the course of my life playing basketball, never the left ankle.

Same! Fractured it once too and sprained like 3 times. Now it clicks when I walk sometimes.

Yes, but not badly.
My husband though... he has once, and did it "proper." Sprained it (3rd degree), but also tore some ligaments, two different fractures, and a partially torn Achilles. Almost two months and still can't work normally bc of it.

I have three times. One time I was running and I looked to the side because I was in a gym and basketballs and stuff was flying everywhere and my foot hit the wall when I tried to jump over something and twisted. Another time I fell down stairs and

The third time I got my foot stuck in between springs on a trampoline and I fell down and it twisted when I did.

I find it hard to believe there are people who haven't, that's just part of growing up

There was one other time too...but it was more of a bad twist. There was a depression in the baseball field at a camp I was at, and when I came in from the outfield to catch a ball, one of my feet landed in it and one on level ground.

Needed an they gave me an aircast to be safe, but I got over it relatively quick. Nothing like it skate incident.

I have to say, skating in general will do wonders for ankle issues, though. I haven't rolled an ankle since I started skating. It'll really strengthen the ligaments, so you're less likely to roll or sprain. I highly recommend it, used to roll a lot.

cairo2 UVM
10/25/14 11:27 pm

Yes. Caught an edge doing a heel turn at center ice during some pickup hockey back in the spring.

But I was back skating 2-3 weeks later simply by keeping it iced and elevated whenever I wasn't walking between classes.

Oh, and of course by using a compression wrap. That always helps.

Looked like a baseball was shoved under the skin at first, though. Couldn't skate off the ice by myself, needed a ride back to my dorm room and an elevator key to get up, couldn't walk up the stairs.

Yep. My foot bent backwards then to the side in soccer. I was on crutches for a week and a half, because it was a really bad sprain with a hairline fracture on the bone.

Along with many, many other times (27 and counting)

Loads of inversions twists/rolls, and one actual inversion sprain. Most recent was an eversion sprain. That šhit sucks!!!!

I twisted mine on the deck on the side of my house.

Yes. Both. Because I have weak hips, my ankles are almost always affected when running because of the weight my hips don't carry.

It's been a while, but yes. It takes surprisingly little to mess it up, like something as minor as a pine cone rolling out from underfoot.

Several times when I was pretty young. More recently I thought I had sprained it, walked on it for two days, then found out I'd broken it.

Several times while playing lacrosse

I love playing basketball, to the point of not staying away when I had no business playing. I've had sprains, on top of sprains. Doctors have told me I would've been better off, experienced less pain, and healed quicker, if I had BROKEN my ankle! :-/

I have really weak joints, particularly my ankles. In grade school, we would have to do a mile run - 3 laps on the choppy grass field - for gym. My ankles were prone to giving out, causing several minor sprains.
