Does roller skating increase the risk of having a foot injury?

Does roller skating increase the risk of having a foot injury?

Nothing ventured: Nothing gained. I suppose if you kept yourself indoors sitting on a well-padded couch for the rest of your life, the only injury you might get is carpal tunnel from fiddling with the tv remote all day.

Rolled my ankle at roller derby practice. Sharp pain 'inside' my ankle only when I flex my foot up towards my head and 'in.' Sprain?

Probably a sprain: Most ankle injuries are muscle strains or ligament sprains and respond we to rest, ice and anti inflammatory medications. If you still have pain after 10 days I would recommend having it evaluated by a medical professional. ...Read more

Derma rolling: The idea behind dermarolling is that small needles puncture the skin thereby enabling better penetration of a serum. The trauma of pricking the skin with needles is also supposed to prompt a repair response leading to improved looking skin. Personally, i regard dermarolling as potentially unhygienic, and unnecessary (as a good serum should be able to penetrate the skin without it being cut. ...Read more
