Have you ever sprained an ankle?
Yeah and at the same time I fractured it.....
Umm... Not just sprained a couple HUNDRED times... Broken at least 4 times. I play soccer so...
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?
Once. It sucked.
constantly. I'm a klutz and kiss the ground once in a while, trip over curbs, fall down stairs. .
this is when I was growing up.
Too many times to count
Yes, but not my own. Sorry again about that, Kevin!
Yes. I have lived long enough to have sprained, twisted & broken my ankle. No fun.
Rolled yes sprang no
I meant sprained
if you answered no, your not being active enough.
Actually I do x country basketball track and judo and still have never sprang my ankle I think I'm active enough
I knew someone wouldn't like what I posted. maybe your not trying hard enough.
Though to word it correctly, someone sprained it for me :/.
And broke my left ankle.
My brother threw fire crackers under the horse I was on!
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
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 am nit sure.
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.
Yes, hurt like a bitch !
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.
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)
yes and it hurt a lot.
Loads of inversions twists/rolls, and one actual inversion sprain. Most recent was an eversion sprain. That šhit sucks!!!!
Yeah, twisted it on a rock ????
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.
Once when I wad thrown through the windshield of my pickup.
Ouch. I made my own cane from left over PVC pipe.
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! :-/
Yes more then one time

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.
Too many times to count...mostly while playing basketball.
Occasionally, doin stuff I shouldn't .
No, but thanks for the offer
Both, a couple times each
