What are some problems that can occur in the ankle area after I play soccer with shin guards?

Blisters: Shin guards are a necessity when playing soccer. Bruises to the leg can possibly cause severe problems such as a compartment syndrome because there is little protection for the tibia in the front of the leg. Other than blisters from rubbing, I have seen few problems from wearing shin guards. Read more

Its been about a month since I sprained my ankle. When might I be able to play soccer and regain full mobility?

Its been about a month since I sprained my ankle. When might I be able to play soccer and regain full mobility?

Progressive return: Once your pain & swelling is under control, you regain full range of motion & strength... You can use a home exercise program in many cases (band exercises, stretching, and balance) to help with the early stages of recovery, but as you return to sport (w/ brace) you should make sure you are able to perform the basics, before you try to fully practice/ play. If pain persists see md & have an x-ray. Read more

Will I be able to figure skate and play soccer on a sprained ankle I can walk as long as I don't bend my ankle I skate monday and play soccer on tues?

Depends: Difficult to say with the info given. If the sprain is just a day or two old with little swelling or bruising and it already feels better then a good taping and you're ready to go. On the other hand, if its a more severe sprain that has not been examined and its been more than a few days, then I would have your doctor see it first before you possibly make things worse by dong too much too soon.

Function and pain: It's hard question to answer given no much information provided. If the sprain was mild and you've achieved pain free status with restored function, then you should be gradually starting to return to your pre-injury activities. Normally, 7 weeks would be enough time to recover in an uncomplicated ankle sprain, but you gotta be pain free and able to function enough to return back to playing. Read more

Taping or ankle bracing may be required till strength to protect further sprains has occurred. The "hard lump...Hurts" is concerning. I would get it checked out before I resumed play. Read more
