Awhile back I did something to my ankle and I went to a sports doctor. He thought the bones were out of place, if that makes sense, not out of play, but just not quite the right place.
He made several adjustments over a few weeks.And it felt good. I stopped treatment on it. Then today I was playing football for the first time, running hard and cutting back.
Now my ankle hurts again. I have to go all through that treatment again if I want to not feel pain. :(
