A.) To list the reasons why you might have pain in your ankle, for no reason.
B.) To list some very effective ways in helping you to deal with your ankle pain, without having to have you feel like you have to go in for surgery!
2.) Reasons Why Your Pain Might Be Present
Many times when someone rolls their ankle, they are not quite sure if they rolled it or not. You can feel like you almost rolled your ankle but since you could walk relatively well right after the incident, you may think you got lucky and you will just have to be careful. Unfortunately, the pain and swelling of a sprain might creep up on you after you have stopped moving and you decided to start moving again after some rest.
Other reasons why you might have pain in your ankle would be arthritis (a degenerative condition) that can cause you pain. This can come on over time and there is no apparent reason why you would have ever though an accident happened; yet you have the ankle pain. As you get older, your ankle pain might be due to overuse or ligaments that are just not as young as they used to be. We do not want to accept it, but our bodies just do not respond as well as we age.
3.) Dealing With Your Pain
If you have ankle pain then you will want to face it head on. We would like to think that rest will take care of everything as far as pain goes, but unfortunately that is not the case. There are two reasons for this… First, its because we do not have the time to lay down on the couch for 3-4 weeks at a time, resting up and letting our ankle heel; we all have jobs to do and the jobs require a certain level of ankle use due to walking etc. Secondly, if you have arthritis and certain types of ankle sprains need serious attention, not only rest. Hey, let’s face it, sometimes surgery is the only way we can recover, but let’s try to avoid it when possible, right?!
4.) Ankle Braces
One of the very best ways for you to deal with your pain is to use a low profile ankle support. They do not have to be huge or bulky to really help you out. The support they can provide can seriously help to reduce your pain, promote an environment of healing and they can instantly help to increase your ankle stability.
