Thought the running community might know a thing or two about ankle problems!
I was born with a twisted ankle and, although it looks fine from the outside, it is a bit weak. I can walk for miles quite happily, but anything that requires balance, even just standing still, makes it ache. It also doesn't really absorb shock very well (which is why I have found I have to run on a machine rather than pavement). I'm not sure how common this problem is, but I assume probably those who have broken or badly sprained their ankle will understand what I'm talking about. I just wondered if anyone had any idea of ways to improve its strength? I do a lot of standing on tip toes but that's about all I can think of.
