View Full Version : Fuck, My Ankle

About two years ago I was trying a switch heel down a 3 set and I landed funny and my leg shot out and my ankle bent really weird. For about a year after that I would have recurring ankle pains when I was skating, I would land a trick normally and it would just hurt like hell. I've been good for a while now, but a few days ago I landed weird and got the exact same pain agan. I skated today and my ankle still hurt like fuck, and I have a skate tour thing tomorrow, so I did what any sensible man would do. I made a thread on SB-C about it. What should I do, oh good doctors of SB-C?

Rest it. Ice it. Compress it. Elevate it.

But you're going to skate anyway, so ignore this post.

the best thing ever I have broken ankles and will have little pain after doing this, get a bucket put ice in it fill halfway with water soak your ankle in it for about 3 minutes take foot out dry it for 5 then put it back in for another 3 and just keep doing that again and again for about 2 hours. I garuntee you will see a difference.

Do what Slapdown said except take some pills in addition.

Pills are actually a bad idea.

If you take pills, you should definitely rest it, and literally not put any pressure on it. Pills mask the pain, which is the bodies natural response to tell you stop. You can sometimes do more damage to your body taking pain killers and then further injuring yourself.

Only take pills if you're gonna rest and do nothing while under the effect.

That's what I meant.

Yeah, that did come off kinda wrong.

It'd be possible...if you did some fucked up shit..like, if your ankle had like a hole in it from surgery.......

Icing - Hold ice on area for 15 minutes, leave for 10 minutes, ice another 15 minutes, leave for half and hour, and repeat.

Ok, I iced it for about 30 minutes, leaving it off for like a minute when it got too cold. I'm going to get ready about now, but should I wrap the ankle before I go?

Wear an ankle brace if you have one.

You probably won't get this 'til your back from your tour or whatever, but it will still come in handy.

If you have any noninflammatory medicine (i.e., Ibuprofen, Tylenol, any aspirin really), take a dosage of one every day. Your ankle is probably really irritated and could use some. Also, take a Ziploc baggy, put ice in it, grab a thin wash-cloth, wrap the cloth around your ankle. then set the bag on top of the washcloth where your ankle hurts the most.

I would say skatings a bad idea, but it's too late now. It should be heavilly strapped to restrict any movement at all, which is a bit impossible considering you're skating.

I guess we're just gonna have to hope for the best, eh?

Just got back, didn't go too bad. I did have a few occasions where I'd land and it would hurt like fuck for about 10 minutes, but overall it went well.

If you feel like skating, it's probably fine. You know you have a problem when you're lying at the bottom of a set in your own vomit.

But really, listen to Slapdown.
