I fell and broke my fibula and badly sprained my ankle about 3 months ago. I have been riding again for the last 2 or so weeks but I have to be very careful when starting or stopping.
I don't have a problem with strength at this point, I have a problem with my right ankle wanting to roll over sideways and respraining. I can ride for 3 miles without much of a problem but its starting and stopping where I have problems.
I seem to have no strength in the sideways motion of my ankle.
How do I fix that?
I have no health insurance or money at this point so this has to be all done on my own. NO physical therapy or doctors visits for me.
I can walk okay but I still use a short walking boot when I go places where the surface is unknown to me because my ankle is so weak and tends to want to roll over and cause me to fall. But I can walk indoors fairly decently.
If I could figure out a way of preventing my ankle from rolling sideways and keep riding, I imagine that would strengthen it over time.
This is so fustrating.
