The latest Ask A Pro question comes from Mike who is suffering chronic ankle sprains from playing soccer. He's tried everything but nothing seems to be working.
We are heading into soccer season and I’ve been prone to spraining my right ankle at least once every couple of months. I’ve done the regular rehabilitation such as rest, ice, and compression to heal the ankle, but it always seems to sprain again a month or so later. Whenever I feel like my ankle is going to roll, the front side of my right hip also seems to be really stiff. It even seems like if I were to step on a small rock, my ankle will roll. Are my ankles really weak because I’ve sprained it so many times? Is there a relation between the stiffness in my hip and the weakness of my ankle?
This month's Ask A Pro questions comes from Lacey who is an avid runner, but has been experiencing some lower leg pain.
I’ve been training the last 3 months for a half marathon coming up in Toronto, and I’ve been getting this sharp achy pain in the inside of my lower left leg--only when I run. A friend suggested I buy new runners and run on softer ground, but I am still experiencing the same pain. I really don’t want to miss out on this run. Is there anything I can do?
This blog is to help you Hockey enthusiast deal with one of the most common hockey injuries in the game--the groin pull. Thanks to Nathan for his question.
I just recently started to play hockey again and felt a sharp groin twinge during our 1st game into the season. I sat out and rested the next few games, but everytime I try to skate, it still feels like its strained. I’ve been stretching as much as possible but it still hurts. It doesn’t feel like I can skate as fast as I usually do without that sharp pain coming back. What do I do?
Our most recent Ask A Pro question comes from Ann who has been having issues with her hip but can't seem to find the right solution to her pain.
Been treated incorrectly for some time now. My latest findings: right hip rotated anteriorly as well as out flared. Left hip hypomobile right hip is hypermobile, trying desperately to find the appropriate MET exercises that I can use to correct myself. My husband was taught how to mobilize but he doesn't do them very well or have time. Any links or ideas here?
