Need Help.... Training with an injured ankle

    Mon, 2010-04-26 16:13 — PistolPete

    I rolled my ankle pretty bad about 6 weeks ago. It was just about all healed up and then a week and a half ago I got caught in a heel hook and I'm back to square one but a bit worse. I've been wrapping the ankle with a neoprene wrap which helps a bit but I don't think it is secure enough. I put Traumeel on it 3 times a day and it def. seems to be helping but I retwisted it this morning rolling. I was passing into side control on the top and when I thru my bottom leg through my ankle gave out and I was done.



    Does anyone know of any rehab exercises that will help repair my ankle. The injury is on the outside of the ankle. Is there a way to wrap this or a product that will work that will help secure the ankle while I roll.



    Would wrestling shoes help or hurt? I actually bought a pair but haven't used them.



    Thanks,

    Pete

    Is this The Original Pistol Pete?

    Is this Pete the BMX Racer / Black Belt in BJJ? I have had 5 broken ankles & three surgeries. Got 6 screws, 1 pin and a plate in my ankles. Not fun. It really just takes some time to heal up and rest. Once you get healed up some i suggest you get these Jump Soles. http://www.jumpusa.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=J&Product... They really help heal and tighten up your ankle ligaments and tendons.
