The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Sprained ANKLE!

    Well Today was the first real practice of football and I fell trying to catch a pass and rolled my ankle pretty bad. Im on crutch's I cant even walk on it.

    Ive been icing and elevation it, the trainer put me in a compression sock.

    What really sucks is Its my first year of football so I really needed to be out there learning. But now im injured and will probly just do weight training

    What my question is how long does a Sprained ankle generally take to heal?

    I know that a vague question. I dont think I tore any ligements put this also isnt the lightest of sprains. Im hopen ill be back out in a 2 days taped up.


    Thanks

    i sprained my ankle really good on july 12th. and i was still having trouble walking last week. im to the point now where i can walk just fine, but i certainly wouldnt want to be jumping or running by anymeans. the rule of thumb is first week you do nothing but elevate above heart and ice, second week you start to move it but still elevate and ice it. 3rd week you start to walk on it and ice it when not walking, and then 4th week do everything you normally would but with caution to the ankle.
    so i would say at least 5 weeks depending how bad it is to not have to worry about it at all.
    good luck, hope it heals fast.

    that was most definitely a mistake...how do you expect it to heal if you do stuff like that?

    Depends on how severe. If it is minor, it is a few weeks. If it is major with broken bones, torn ligaments, and torn nerves, it will be much longer like mine. Each ankle I destroyed left me in a wheelchair/crutches for almost a year. I spent 2 years in rehab. Ankles are my weakness like an achilles heal.

    I sprained my ankle about a year and a half ago and I have never been able to get full flexibility with it since then. If I try to squat too low keeping my heel on the ground I have bad pain on the inside of my ankle. Im not sure if strengthening exercises or stretching on a step or something will help me at this point, but I am a bit sad that my trainer and doctor told me that I would be painless after about 3-5 months. I jump off of my left foot which is the ankle I sprained and now I cant even jump half as high as I used to.
