Good day to all readers, I had a serious sprain on my right ankle during a basketball game when I was 13 years old, and I immediately wrapped with ice to prevent any further swelling. After that I wrapped the ankle with warm towel and massage the ankle for few weeks. After a few months I continued playing basketball without any pain. After a few months I sprained the same ankle during a basketball match and after that during the years I sprained the same ankle. I am still playing basketball but without spraining my ankle for the past 2 years. I got interested in football after slowing down basketball although I am still playing. I have been coached for football and every time I kick the ball even with the correct technic, the ankle pains like having a sprain but after resting the ankle for 20-30 minutes and I continue to kick the ball the pain comes back again and it is so frustrating and the pain is unbearable. I have seen a doctor and taken an x-ray but the x-ray shows nothing and the doctor tells me that it is better if I stop playing football. Are there any exercises that I can do to strengthen my ankle muscle?
