    My Aunt used to, or still does sell Nikken magnets. I kinda thought it was BS but my mom had a few single magnets she gave me to use when my knee was hurting(cronic knee pain issue) and they actually really helped.
    This is the info on the ones she sold Nikken Product Technologies I'm sure you can find a ton of others, I would imagine they all work on the same principle.

    Have you ever wrapped it or worn a brace on your ankle for riding? Might stop some of the flexing from the extra loose ligaments.

    Thanks for the link Rachel1786...I'll definitely look into that.

    Cacowgirl- I usually do try to wrap it in an ace bandage and if it's cold add in some instant handwarmers. It definitely does help the stability...especially if I use my orthotics and tight riding boots. Unfortunately it doesn't help the pain at all...in fact it makes my ankle hurt way,way worse from keeping it in a position that it does not naturally want to be in...which definitely distracts from riding and kind of is making it not fun anymore :/ If I could find a solution that keeps it in place and takes away (or at least lessens) the pain I would be in heaven...lol :)
