R Foot, Ankle Sprain

2006-11-11 – 2006-12-09

Grade: 2

Turned the R outside ankle while running in terrain. I guess the leafs obscured the divot? Anyway, it was severe enough that I felt it 'pop,' and had to stop and hobble around for a bit before gingerly moving on. It's now a bit swollen.

Just the usual - R.I.C.E. along with NSAID. I'm calling it recovered because the swelling and soreness are gone now. However, the ankle tendons are still weaker than normal, when a sudden turn will trigger momentary pain. Will need to do some strengthening exercises to rehab it to full strength.
