I currently have my ankle bandaged, elevated, and loaded down with ice. Why? Because on Monday I took a tumble down some stairs.
Fortunately, I didn’t have far to fall, but I got a sprained ankle out of the whole ordeal.
This isn’t the first time I’ve sprained my ankle; a year ago I twisted up my ankle during a dance class and had to keep it wrapped up for several weeks. It was incredibly painful, especially when I had to take off my shoes. Thankfully, this recent sprain isn’t nearly as bad, although I’m still being extra cautious not to strain the muscles further.
Have you ever sprained an ankle? What was the cause?
