Ankle Pain

I started getting these odd ankle aches and pains when I was doing Muay Thai regularly. It originates on the inside of my ankles (start at the instep of the foot and move up just beyond the joint and you're there). It starts out as an ache but can turn into a dull pain after workouts. I usualy just treat with anti-inflamatories and ice. But it usually comes right back during the next workout.

I mention the history because those same pains started to flare up again this week. I've been doing quite a bit of running and I walk everywhere which is probably why it's happening again.

I also have a tendency to roll my ankles...a lot. Even if I'm walking on perfectly flat suface it still happens, it seems that my feet tend to supinate when I roll them.

What do you guys think?

Re: Ankle Pain

Take a rest week or two.

Ice and massage for 30-60 mins per day. Do some theraband ankle strengthening exercises as well.

If your peroneals are weak, and you have some supination you tend to roll your ankles a bunch.

Check your hips for tightness especially external rotation of the femur... that tends to rotate the tibia some and cause supination. Also, check to see if your glut medius is working correctly.

I just got started back on the program so the week off is a no go. The pain isn't constent, it just flares up from time to time.

And how do I check all those things?

Well, if your health isn't worth anything to you then you don't have to rest.

If you don't know anything about what I said, see a competent physical therapist.
