What do i do now,just sprained my ankle this morning while i was jogging.I thought it was minor because i managed to go for about half a mile before i stopped my run but now i am walking but with difficulties . . . it's so painful. emoticon

Can't bear to stop doing my work outs,can somebody suggest what i do to make the pains lessen,I really don't want to do anything to aggravate my pains.

    Be careful don't exercise whilst injured let the ankle heal it is better to have a few days off your feet than end up with a few weks because you continued to exercise. Take care. emoticon emoticon

    oh..ouch!! get better soon...just take it easy until it heals...I have a weak ankle from a bad sprain in high school and I tend to re-injure it about everyother year...

I injured myself today too..I stubbed my little toe on our coffee table and it was hours ago and still throbs..I may have broken it :(

Swimming would be a great alternative exercise...

Go star "fish" :)

    RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. And take a couple of rest days to recover. Alternate the Ice on and off - 10 minutes on and some time off.
Get well.

    So sorry about your sprain! Yes, you need to avoid running on it while it heals, & even minimize walking. You can do upper-body strength training, & I bet swimming would feel good.

    Give your ankle plenty of time to heal. Ice, rest and elevate.

Check out the Limited Mobility Lifestyle Center. It has great info for workout when you're hurt.

    Well, don't work out while you're injured! That's asking for trouble!!!

Maybe look up chair workouts...
