How to heal a ankle injury that I sustained a year ago? I injured my ankle a year from now, playing soccer. Most likely I damaged my legement, the problem is that it's been a year and ofcourse the injury got better, but there is still a problem. When I kick the ball hard my injured ankle hurts. But when I run, make turns, kick the ball with the side of my foot, I don't feel any discomfort on my ankle. What might be the problem? How can I help the injury heal? Anyone had similar problem before?

You should stop kicking ball and go climbing. No Really, have X-rays done and speak to doctor. Ankles are under pressure all the time. I have suffered some damage also and its not cool. Don't do home remedy. See the pro.
