4 days ago I suffered a grade 2 ankle sprain. I would like to know if I can still deadlift. I will be deadlifting with 355 for 4-6 reps, nothing too crazy. Will this affect my ankle healing at all? My injury was due to inversion and I doubt a deadlift will replicate that same kind of force and worsen it. However, the doctor told me no lower body stuff for 4-6 weeks... he was a primary care physician, not ortho or sports medicine so I am not 100% positive he is an expert. I already have an ankle wrap I can make pretty tight as to protect the ankle. Fellow lifters please give me advice, I've only been deadlifting for 3 months and I'm loving it and been making gains and dont want to stop, I am sure some of you can understand. Advice please??
