Why does your ankle sprain still hurt? You might still have foot and ankle pain because the injury has not fully restored. Even though a sprain is not the same as a break, it is often more painful and can take longer to rebuild themselves. Many people report having foot and ankle pain for many weeks or months before fully recovering from a injury. Although we can go about out daily routines; going to work, shopping, cooking etc, many times because the ankle has not fully recovered (shown by tenderness or swollenness) it leaves a larger percentage prospects for a second injury. Foot and ankle pain caused by a sprained ankle end up being treated just as seriously as if from a broken ankle.

So how do your going about recovering from a sprained ankle. Well, several most injuries, RICE is recommended, but only for the first 48 hours. Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation can reduce foot and ankle pain for their early two days as well as prevent swelling and aid in the procedure However after 48 hours RICE loses its effectiveness and your left just with “R” – basically resting till the ankle heals itself. Most people (as I used to), simple judged their healing because when many normal things can do. Yesterday they couldn’t go to work, today they could. Today it took you a while to walk up the stairs,, maybe in several days it will be easier. Foot and ankle pain is just considered part of the procedure.

But now I prefer to take purifies proactive alternative. Although rest is a normal functioning part of recovery from any injury, rehabilitation is extremely important. When you don’t start moving that ankle around, the muscles will become static, lose strength, and it also will take more time get for you to you old self. We a nurse recommend massaging the ankle (firm but are still not rough), stretching, and small exercises to build up electrical power. Although initially I resisted, thinking might only make my foot and ankle pain worse, she finally convinced me and Having been surprised at the amazing satisfaction! The idea is if you don’t push yourself to recover, your ankle needs the easy road to recover together with a state of just what’s compulsory. I mean that should can walk up a flight ticket of stairs, but absolutely feel the tension in your ankle, wants that undertake it ! walk up, but would it not be better if precisely what people run rising?

That’s why when I sprained my ankle a few months ago, after the 48 hour resting period I immediately began exercising my ankle. Nothing stressful of process.maybe walking to the kitchen, returning to “draw invisible circles” with my big toe, due to being on one foot, and other simple but painful exercises. In just a full week I was walking and down stairs with little pain and in two weeks time Acquired jogging again. The ankle stayed swollen for quite some time nevertheless continued with massages along with the size eventually returned on track. Much faster recover than anything I read online.
