Twisted ankles

Hey guys, this is probably a stupid poll, but me and my friend were talking about Serena's and Maria's ankle injuries and it brought up a discussion about twisted ankles. And one of us thinks there is more pain at the moment you get the injury and in the next few minutes, and one of us thinks there is more pains a couple days (2-3) after the injury. For those of you who have had twisted ankles, what do you think?

Re: Twisted ankles

It's at it's worst a couple days after the injury. Poor Serena about now!

Really what about Dokic at AO 09, she twisted hers and 2 days later she was playing good tennis and running with no signs of pain against Safina.

Re: Twisted ankles

Well Dokic didn't really feel that much pain at the moment either. If I remember correctly, the injury came at 6-5 for her and she played 3 more games after that I guess hers just wasn't that serious. I rolled my ankle once and I could walk with pain that day but the day after I couldn't step on the foot

Re: Twisted ankles

I've never had pain after two or three days unless I've done something to re-sprain the ankle. I don't get why pain would appear several days later. Seems illogical unless you've compounded the injury somehow. When I had a really bad strain/ligament stretch, the pain was unbearable from the start and for three days (with two days of throbbing), so... After a week and a bit, I was fine, got back to tennis, not world-class, but...local. When I got a hairline fracture in my foot, it was a much bigger problem. There was acute pain (an hour or so after the injury, after I stopped walking), but it was short-lived--however, it was not right for several months (a chronic pain until the fracture healed). Other sprains are painful immediately after movement is stopped, but the pain went away after a couple days. So...I think Serena was just being cautious. I don't believe sprains get worse after a few days unless there is a re-sprain.

Re: Twisted ankles

I never really had a painful/serious ankle twist (Knock on wood!!!) but they hurt more when you have to walk. The pressure can really get to you, and you have to hobble.

That was obviuosly a minor twist grade 1. Had she broken any ligaments, she would not have been able to play at all.

For the sake of this thread i have had ankle ligaments sprain and knee sprain and i can tell you that the first one hurts more days after, but the knee one hurts terribly in the exact moment it happens.

Re: Twisted ankles

I sprained my ankle playing tennis and was able to finish the match (with limited mobility and much ballbashing ) because the pain wasn't too bad. The next day the pain was excruciating and I could hardly walk.

But to answer your question, less serious sprains probably hurt more when they happen, and more serious ones hurt more later on.

Re: Twisted ankles

i twisted my ankle once, while playing tennis, it was the same move as serena did

i just tied my shoes a bit tighter and continued and it was fine, the major pain started as i tried to remove my shoe

Re: Twisted ankles

Thank you everyone

I tried to explain my case, but he still insists on everyone here being wrong. I explained that, whilst twisting your ankle hurts, you can sometimes keep playing tennis for a good 30 minutes. it's no coincidence that Serena was able to keep playing after she twisted it.

Having suffered from many twisted ankles in the past, I said that the day/s after the injury, the pain is much much much more intense and there was no way I'd be able to walk on it, let alone play tennis.

He still considers himself to be right

Well having twisted both my ankles at least 5 times each and feeling much less pain even after one day and never feeling pain beyond 3 days, I don't see how I could think otherwise. Plus seeing how ppl react when they do, they're obviously in very intense pain, while when you see them 3 days after, they can do all of their activities just fine, and you wouldn't even know they're injured by looking at their body language, they just have to be careful not to put too much weight on it.

Re: Twisted ankles

Maybe you broke your ankles Dom? Or who knows... maybe you just had really bad sprains like when Golovin had to retire against Sharapova.

Huh!? I've never broken my ankles, I've twisted them many times though and there was a lot of pain for the first few minutes and after one or 2 days there was hardly any pain already, unless I put alot of weight on it.
