I have a history of a weak right ankle. I used to roll it very occasionally when I was younger, but in the ninth grade I got put on crutches because I fell off a stool two feet off the ground and landed ON my ankle. Ever since then it's been my only "real" physical limitation.
I'll go months, occasionally a year, without having an issue with it. But then, quite suddenly, it will give out if I'm walking and I'll roll it again. It's instantaneously painful, but I can usually breath it off and go about my day without any more problems.
Well, I rolled it again last night walking on mulch as I was about to get into my truck and I rolled it pretty bad. It's day two and I'm still having pain (though it has subsided since the first day) when walking. I'm wearing my ankle brace to get around as I usually do when I roll it.
My question, does anyone have any suggestion for exercising with an injured ankle? I've just gotten back into the groove of exercising again and now this has occurred and I don't really want to do nothing in the mean time.
I don't currently have access to a gym (though that will change in march, at which point I shouldn't still be injured), so that's not an option. Anything at home? I've relied pretty much on running/walking and work out videos to do my workouts with an occasional rollerblading excursion and some other variety, but most of it involved using my feet and lower body muscles, so I need some ideas!
