Ankle problems

I play basketball and I have had ankle problems for the last 3 years after i had a severe sprain and fracture on my right ankle. Since then i have sprained my left ankle severely once and minor sprains about 3 times along with rolling it countless times. My right ankle is much worse as i have severely sprained it 3 times. I have gone through physical therapy 3 times and recently i have not had a problem with the stability of my ankle as far as spraining or rolling it goes. But at times it gets very stiff and painful when i try jumping and cutting. Now my achiles and inside of my ankle are having a lot of pain, even when im just walking. If i want to continue playing basketball at the next level do you think surgery is the right thing to do or do more therapy. Thanks.

    Sounds like you may have some anatomical problems. I sprained my ankle only once as a young sprinter at age 16, and it has never been right after that. You need a good sports doctor who can guide you to recovery and advise you as to what is wrong and how to avoid these injuries.
