Injury Advise (Ankle)

#1
Hi, im new to this so just getting to grips.

I have injured my ankle 3 times in the past 5 months as i hadn't let it heal properly (from running). Went to A&E the 3rd time and i haven't broken or fractured anything. They said it's probably just a torn ligament and to rest for awhile. i did sort of, its been nearly 2 months now and in that time i have been cycling and swimming as i had no pain in my ankle and it was getting better. I am now getting back in to running and have been doing 1.5 mile runs mon-wed-friday. so just easing myself back into it. I'm in the process of joining the Army (Parachute Regiment) so need to keep my fitness up.

Can anyone give me any advise on what you think might help my situation??
I have been waiting nearly 4 months to hear about my medical form as my GP messed them up the first time. so its good in away but very frustrating.

Thanks in advance.

Balance boards are excellent to help strength and balance as are the exercises you should have been given by the physio.

Now off you bugger.

You can sometimes self refer to an NHS physio call your GP's reception. If not ask the receptionist if the GP can refer you. Don't pay!

I had this done for ligaments:

Prolotherapy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I went here:

Prolotherapy Uk | What Is Prolotherapy | Lumbar Instability

The Doc there has many of the england footie, rugby and cricket team members that he treats. If he's good enough for them he's good enough for me. Prolotherapy is one of the little fitness tricks that professional sportsmen use to help speed up injury healing time.

In a nutshell prolotherapy works by stimulating the growth, and thereby the strength, of a ligament. I had it done to the ligaments in my lumbar region to allow me to continue running and skydiving with a slipped disc - the strengthened ligaments helping to give more stability to the lower spine.

The Blackberry clinic is not NHS though.

Yeah i herd something like this from the Docs, they basically said you can have steroids injected into your ankle if injury was that bad. I take it you have to pay for the injection?

Thanks for the links!

Try resting it for three weeks as advised?
The first time it happened i rested for a week and then went off running again. second time i rested for 3 weeks, then the 3rd i rested for nearly 2 months. which brings me up to now. so im just taking it easy. only problem is im too eager to get out running again

I anticipate you never leaving a DZ unaided.
