Great post.

I straight-lined bombed a jump yesterday and messed the landing. Result: got an aknle sprain. Worst sprain I've had yet. Kept boarding though, just not as intense.

I have no swelling nor bruising. Nothing feels broken, I don't even have tenderness. I'm walking fine, I just wouldn't run.

I've been icing it like crazy and it seems to be a lot better.

How would you evaluate the degree of severity of a sprain? (see doc vs no doc)

Would you recommend seeing a doc regardless of the symptoms? - plz say no....
