Ankle pain increase
The pain in my left ankle has been increasing lately and I am in the middle of softball season and club volleyball season. What should I do? Any ideas to help decrease the pain and to stay in sport seasons?

Hi!

I know this is not what you want to hear but it is advisable not to play any sports with an ankle that is paining. The cause of the pain has to be treated and often rest is prescribed with most treatments. You could however, consult a sports injury specialist (must be having one for your team) and see if something can be done. Hope this helps. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.

thank you for the advice, i have already talked to my school trainer and he said something about my tendon in my ankle and he said just to tape it up for sports. It still bothers my taped up or not.

you can also apply ice to it after you are done playing either softball or volleyball for the day. most people say to leave the ice on for 20 minutes, then remove it for 20minutes, etc. after a few ice sessions, i would try a heating pad for a few more cycles. It might lessen your pain somewhat the next day. Maybe try and "stay off it" as much as possible, but be careful as this may lead to stiffness when you do go and put your weight on it. Taking some Motrin (Ibuprofen) may help with the pain, and it's an anti- inflammatory also. Good luck,

P.S._----Make sure to see your trainer or your doctor if it starts to get worse, or doesn't start feeling better in a week or so.
