I posted 8 weeks ago about running on a sprained ankle, basically sprained bad for the third time in my life, all about 5 or 6 years apart. every time it takes a while to heal, basically until i buck up and wear a brace 24 7 for a while like, 6 plus weeks.. I've been running on it and that is actually fine, i never have issues, my re injuries so far have all been, flip turns, stepping on toys, today i threw a tire threw a window before we tore a building down and yep again, nothing big, like i will run without hesitation. if your bored cookiebuilder is my insta and has the video of the tire throw and my right foot is the bad one..
Anyhoo I went to the doc because I'm a hypochondriac, a orthopedic foot guy specialist he could see in a xray the bone had been pulled off a few different times and then he tested my ankle he says i have really no more lateral stability, he recommends the brostum with a internal brace. It's obviously not a must do, I am sure i could really baby this thing for a bit and get scar tissue to build up enough that a flip turn wouldn't re injure it. But from what he says recovery is pretty quick and then I have a solid ankle again. he called it a home run surgery. So who has done it? and docs of the world should i do it??? what do you guys know?? btw I searched for this thread already and we need a good one for people to reference, not much on the twitch or lets run about this TIA!
