ankle recovery question
Hi, I am 16 years old and I sprained my ankle during a volleyball game several months ago. I jumped up to spike the ball and landed unevenly, rolling my ankle inwards.
I was advised to go to a doctor because I was unable to put any weight on it.
The doctor told me I had a grade 2.5 (i guess right between 2 and 3) sprain. After a cast, physical therapy, and a brace, I was given the blessing that I would be able to return to sports.
It has been a month since I have returned and I have been noticing pain and stiffness in the back of my ankle, totally separate from where I initially sprained it.
Is this unusual?
