Anything beyond a grade 1 lateral ankle strain I feel is best treated in a Fx boot and or cast with WBAT or crutches. Follow up xrays a week out also maybe helpful to rule out a fx prior to therapy. After two weeks of rest, ice, nsaids. Formal therapy should start slowly progressing into a strengthening program over time.View Thread
Things that come to mind is a stress fx. Follow up with your local orthopaedics Dr. routine x-ray may show cortical changes or a bone scan can help rule out stress fractures. Also. If you miss this marathon. The Marine Corp Marathon in Washington D.C. is my most favorite. Held Oct 31.View Thread
