Thumbs up

Wow great recommendations Dirty. I had a fibula fx and ankle dislocation last July while mountain biking. Ended up with a plate and 8 screws. Haven't ridden at all last season. I still feel weak in my ankle. Strapped in for the first time the other day just stretching it out, hopefully I'll be able to ride ok this season. Any you tube video links you can recommend? I wanna get a better idea of those exercises. Sorry for the hijack.

Tech, I would definitely do some PT at home just to get your ankles back up to par though. Strength exercises sound like it would definitely help though.

I was thinking of heading over to the local med supply store and picking up one of those sleeve/sock type braces to wear inside my boot.
I dont ride w a brace...i do a tape job on my right ankle (even tho both ankles arent great its mostly my right that is my enemy)

I have achilles tendonitis and my two ligaments (perennial ligaments in back of ankle) are very worn n weak from soccer...i had an achilles boot for 2 mos up until 2 weeks ago and the dr said snowboarding is ok to do bc the boots are very stiff compared to reg shoes/boots and flexing in them is more supportive as well as how it flexes in snowboarding compared to everyday walking/running etc....

You should be ok....just do some strengthening and def RICE....but you should be ok in just a boot but everyone is diff....good luck
