Sports Injury Answered

I do cross country and run 6 miles a day. I have been having trouble with my knees and ankles. I went to the doctor, and they said I had a torn ligament in my ankles. Any suggestions on how to help them heal?

You should probably get a brace/wrap to support the  weakened areas. It'll help you heal and avoid more injuries. I wore two anke wraps for basketball and track, and I cannot tell you how many times they saved me from spraining my ankles.

You can also buy cheap ones at Dick's Sporting Goods or even Walgreens.

I went to the doctor and I am going to physical therapy now, and ice is one thing that I have to do

Only in cartoons. Freeze your stomach, then smash it with a hammer.

I dunno, but, I'm really negative right now because I had just realized something about myself.
