Most people are anxious to enjoy the outdoors once the first days of spring arrive. But many will find that staying inside has left their ankles in less-than-prime condition for participating in active events. Especially at risk is anyone with an old ankle sprain that may not have fully healed.
Even if your sprain occurred years ago and you don’t notice any pain in normal daily activity, the ankle may still be weak. Starting up exercise again can cause further damage in areas that didn’t heal properly before. If you’re embarking on a fitness or athletic program this spring, contact our office to have that old ankle injury checked out before becoming active again. Pain in the ankle area is never normal…even when you’re trying to get back in shape!
