To those of you with ankle injuries, are you able to ice skate? If so, how do you do it without extreme pain?
When I was thirteen, I was in a nasty car accident and dislocated my left ankle. It’s pretty much healed in fact, the accident was exactly 8 years ago today, I just realized that! but I can’t do certain things without extreme pain. One of these is ice skating. I haven’t skated very much but I like to go every once in a while. However, when I skate, my ankle swells to the size of an orange and I have to sit down almost immediately. Keep in mind, this is while wearing a brace. Is there anything I can do to prevent this excruciating pain?
