I sprained my ankle about a month ago playing sport but now I can walk run and jump without any pain. Should I go back to playing sports now?

A Little support. Although a month may seem like a long time, it's actually only four weeks. Ligaments, because of the nature of the tissue, have a less than optimal blood supply so subsequently they heal slower than other tissues. Rather than risk it all too soon, why not explore the possibility of some supportive measures like taping or wearing an ankle support for another month. Thank you for using Healthtap.

Not sure. what your question is? If you believe you have a chronic or recurring injury to your ankle that will not heal, get evaluated by an ankle specialist, orthopedic surgeon, or sports medicine physician. New treatments such as PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections are sometimes useful for musculoskeletal injuries that will not heal with standard non-invasive therapies. Read more...
