Almost a year ago I sprain my ankle pretty bad, so much so that it got HUGE and bruised. I was laid up for awhile because it hurt to put the littles pressure on it. Honestly I thought I broke it.
Today, it's still puffy, and quite a bit larger than the other, and I still don't have the range of movement that I used to have. I don't have a problem getting around on it, I can walk fine.
Where it poses the problem I've found is while I'm on the saddle. I had my first riding lesson last week, and toward the end of the lesson I was in agony because my ankle was all twisted, and in pain, not only that but my knee was starting to hurt also. Of course I was loving every minute of it because I was riding again!!!!
Anyone have any advice on how to loosen up your joints? I have short legs, and a larger body type, so I guess I have to ride larger horses? At any right, the way my foot was in the stirrup was killing me!
Thanks in advance guys.
