Ankle & Knee Rehab

Anyone had experience with sore ankles or knees?

I had a bad landing 2 weeks ago and rolled a couple of times down the piste. My nose dug in and most of the load was put onto the lower part of my left leg as it twisted a bit. I'm super glad I'm not a skier, otherwise I think I could've actually done some serious damage to my ligaments.

When I went through normal walking motions it was fine, but any irregular rotation of the ankle or knee (when my foot or knee rotated in azimuth) felt a bit dodgy.

Anyways it's pretty much feeling better now but I'd like to know of these kind of injuries can be rehabbed faster by using the joints normally, or whether it's better to lay off using then?

My winter holidays have just started and I want to make sure I can minimise downtime if I injure my joints again.

Man don't even remind me. Last year caught my edge landing off a booter. Knocked myself out.... Woke up sliding with my binding on my boot not attached to my board.. Two stress fractures around the ankle.. Worst pain.... Took me 8 months to fully recover because I'm a dumb ass and kept snowboarding on it.. Idk about your situation but the more you stay off an injury the better it should heal. I would think.

You are probably going to need to stay off of it for a while. I know it sucks because it is Winter break. I have a broken ankle and have just been resting lots. Icing it every night really helps. Maybe try to wrap a cloth around your ankle/knee to compress it while you rest.

Thanks guys,

The knee is feeling pretty good, and the ankle's almost there. I guess I'll take the next 2 days off of riding..

Do any of you folks see a physio or sports doctor regularly?
