Ankle Sprains

I messed up my ankle late February, and it hasn't healed yet. I had stepped off a step carrying a rabbit cage, and my foot collapsed, rolling to the side and popping and then the other side and popping. After about two minutes I could get up and walk with minimal pain, but it slowly worsened, and by that night I couldn't walk, and stayed like that for two days, with only a little swelling. It healed after that until it hit a point where it stopped. It didn't bug me walking normally, though I found myself leaning on the side, but only when I twisted and turned it, which is a problem since I am a competitive shooter, and can't get into kneeling position. I went to the chiropractor twice who completely adjusted me which helped a little tiny bit, and tried turmeric which didn't do anything. Just this weekend I sprained it again,once again only minimal swelling, this time on the top and the side muscle feels very taunt, and there's a slightly sharp pain on top when I attempt to walk normally. What should I do? I really need it to get better, but I think my mom thinks I'm exaggerating a bit, so I don't think she'll take me to the doctor. Any home remedies? Is it that big of a deal, or more important than I think?

It may not be real serious, but I think you should go to the doctor just to check. It sounds like a high ankle sprain and they don't heal fast. I sprained my ankle rehearsing for a ballet recital last year and it took a long time to heal and feel right again. The doctor would look it over and suggest stuff to make it feel better and maybe heal faster. My doctor gave me a prescription to keep the inflammation down and recommended heat, ace bandages, and rest. Then when it started to feel better, exercises to strengthen it. Actually ballet positions and plies and stuff are good strengtheners. But not sure if you'd be into ballet. Hope u feel better.
