More than two years ago I injured my ankle and a few months ago I got back to the gym. The problem: My ankle is still very weak and not completely healed.
Yesterday I went to the gym, wore the stabilizing brace I bought and casually rode a bike for 20 minutes while reading Time magazine. Then went to the treadmill and did 3 minutes on, 3 minutes off walk-jog alternate for 21 minutes. (This totaled 9 minutes jogging)
By the time I finished not only was my ankle somewhat sore, this was expected, but it was somewhat swollen. This swelling lasted hours and finally dissipated completely by morning.
My question is, when originally sustaining an ankle injury you alternate hot and cold for swelling and pain. Should I start this cycle again, two years later?
Hope to Heal Sometime Soon!
