Ankle soreness for hurdler
An_245143 posted:
I am a high school competitive hurdler, and recently I have been having pain in my left ankle, which is the ankle I land on after clearing a hurdle. This pain started after I landed wrong during a race. I was able to finish the race with relatively little pain, but immediately afterwords it was very sore.
The pain is on the top of my ankle. I can bear weight on it easily, but flexing or rotating my ankle is very painful, especially when I point it to the outside and try to bring it back straight.
It is mainly exercise induced, but usually after really hard practices/meets it is hard to walk the next day (not because of weight, but because I have to bend my ankle to walk). I have seen a trainer about it, and he said I may have "tweaked" a ligament. I was wondering if anybody has had this same issue and whether it was just soreness or an actual injury. Thanks!
