    Twisted my ankle a week ago, doing a Uchimata that sent the uke flying to land on my foot.. Havnt really noticed it until 2 days ago, the pain keeps building up.. I dont wanna stop training because of this, any suggestions on what to do?

    Stop training, ice your ankle and strap it up.

    same problem , different reason. i twisted my ankle and its swollen to like double the size. just icing it and it doesnt seem to be getting worse , it just hasnt improved for a few days. if ur not stressing that ankle when ur training, then strap it up and just keep going .

    i would do is fire and ice. It should stop the swelling and you shouldnt go to any more class untill the ankle get better.

    Call me old school, but I'm on of those that dont believe in masking the pain with painkillers.. If that is painkillers :wink:

    they're anti-inflammatories they'll help the swelling go down and can speed up healing, probably a good idea, but the most important thing is rest.

    Make sure you ease back into training, its too easy to overdo it when coming back from an injury and put yourself back to square one, especially with a comp to train for. Believe me ive been there, did a judo comp with an injured knee that i hadnt allowed to heal fully and ended up relying on grabbing my opponent and immediately doing a half hearted sacrifice throw so i could get into groundwork and choke them out. Not something I'd like to do again even though i managed to win.
