    hehe - sprain /twisted ankle is incredibly painful - fortunately bark is worse than it's bite - keep it elevated and get some ice on it... give it a day or so or the swelling to go down, then start doing range of motion exercise - e.g. doing a full circle with your big toe. get it strapped up a bit if you have to walk on it in the first week.. you should be back in a week or so..

    Do Not Get Back On The Horse!

    i made that mistake.


    i sprained my ankle really badly the first time. i heard a pop and everything. it swelled quite a bit. i made the mistake of playing 3 days after it happened because i didnt want my doubles partner to get upset and loose. and i had my last dance competition and performed on it as well... another big mistake

    the trainers at my school yelled at me... so i sat out for the next week.
    then a week after i sprained my ankle before... i did it again.
    this time no pop though. but just as painful. it was during confrence and it was my first match.

    so i went to the doctor just so i could get a note for PE to be excused.
    and they took Xrays... and sure enough i have a stress fracture in my ankle. along with a very bad sprain.

    im stuck in this big orthopedic boot for 4-6 weeks.
    no PE, no activities and i have to use crutches for the first week.

    so i advise you NOT to play right away.
    do ankle excersizes and keep it rested for atleast 3-4 weeks.:(

    I didn't go for any medical treament when I got my ankle twisted like almost a year ago. It lasted for about 2 months although I still play badminton almost everyday. Every night before I sleep, I would give myself a message around the tendon. Reduce lunges and jumps. That would help. Try to put on ankle support when you play or even at home.
