Hi, Early Dec last year I sprained my ankle during badminton, it was a minor sprain, with some swelling and bruising. I was walking fine within a few days and started playing again two weeks later. Since then, I always wore an ankle guard while playing. Yesterday, I forgot to bring my ankle guard so I thought it'll be fine to play without it. I sprained it again. Same place, same thing, swelling and bruising. How long should I wait before resuming badminton? Also, could it be my shoe problem? I am wearing Mizuno shoes. I have small feet. The shoes fit me but may not be tight enough, which I think is why I sprained in the first place. But I tie my shoelaces tight. Someone is recommending Asics to me, but the last time I went there, their smallest size was too big for me. Do I really need to change shoes?
