Default Intense Pain in Lead Foot

I've been snowboarding for a good 6 or so years now and I've always had this problem, but never as bad as I have had recently. What I think it is, is ATFL. This is a pain running down the outer tendon of my lower leg on my lead foot (in my case left). So I'm wondering if anyone else is having or has had this problem and knows a fix to it? I now can't ride down more than once without feeling very sensitive and its limiting my capabilities tremendously.

Can you post a picture of your setup? binding and high back positions, etc?

After looking into it a little more. It seems to be the fibularis brevis muscle.

You may have a broken ankle. If you have insurance see doctor.

I mentioned this in another thread, but I dealt with something similar a few years back. I wanted to see the pictures to mostly look at the high backs to make sure they weren't in some weird position compared to the binding angles to the board. When I was having the issues on the outside of my lead leg down to just above my ankle, it made it painful to ride and just as painful going up the lifts. It felt like it was just dragging on my tendons. I brought my board in to get it checked out by the guys in the rental shop at a local hill and they made a quick high back rotational adjustment (even though mine appeared to be fine), and I haven't had any issues since. Just something for you to try/check into. Move it around and try a few runs. My leg started to feel better after literally 1 or 2 runs after the adjustment.

You've failed to mention if you have ever played with your binding angles to see if a different angle increased/decreased the pain or comfort when riding.

Every persons angles are different. Initial setup ups are guide lines. No expert but that looks like a ton of angle on that front foot. As I mentioned have you experimented with different angles?

My feet are very pronated I ride +18/-18 duck and it took me a while to truly dial my angles in.

Last year, a guy at the shop told me that I shouldn't put my angles over 30 degrees in total.(2bindings) Because it cause knee and ankle pain
