View Full Version : tightness in ankle area

07-04-2006, 11:14 AM
I just wondered if anyone else experience the following sensation while running..... After running for maybe a mile or two, I begin to feel an uncomfortableness in the front of my ankle where the bottom of the front of my leg meets my foot. It feels like something is going on with the muscles in this area.....almost like my feet are not going to continue to run properly. It's not extremely painful or anything, but I really hate the sensation. I try to remember to do a lot of ankle twists and stretches prior to running. This might delay the sensation for a while, but I often still seem to get it. Don't know why....

Sorry to hear your trouble, Riggy.:(

I used to have pain there (years ago). I didn't have to see a doctor, hopefully you won't either. What worked for me was easing up on the stretching (I'm notorious for overdoing it) and not lacing my shoes too tight. Also, I don't lace the uppermost pair of holes.

Hope things work out for you.

I also heard somewhere that lacing your shoes backwards can help relieve pressure. Maybe try that and let us know.
