Sudden ankle pain whilst squatting
Today whilst squatting i noticed a pain or more of an uncomfortable pressure in my left ankle on the outside of my leg. My first 3 sets were fine it was on my 4th and 5th set. Im hoping this would be a one off but after reading think i might experience this everytime i squat now, especially as i get heavier. Any suggestions on easing this please or has anyone else have anything similiar?
Hey, Kimmy! I really hope you are not injured. I squat real heavy. When I started working with my kinesiologis, a little trick he showed me was to put two plates under my heels to avoid stress related injuries on the ankles. At least, that's why I think he asked me to do it. What I do know is that you're always well anchored that way. I hope that can help and also that some of the other Skimblers with their expertise can offer up worthy advice. If it keeps hurting more so than mild discomfor, go see a professional. Ok, darling?
Hi kim. I can relate to pain in the ankles. I broke both of them last year... not squatting so don't worry heheh. But I do wrap my ankles whenever I squat now. Maybe you can try that as well. If the pain persist you should see a physician. Best of luck to you.
