Forgive me if you're already doing it, but you need to strengthen your ankle more comprehensively if you're worried about it buckling when bowling. For example, hops, fowards and backwards to work on stabilisation.
Yeah been doing physio like that sorta thing since november-ish, a couple of months after my op. Pre-op I had physio to fix the mis-diagnosis I was given... my last session of physio ended with me trying to hop and collapsing on the floor... cue my physio woman saying "You're well on the way to recovery. Keep doing that".... so I went private and got a real diagnosis and surgery.... But yeah I can hop a lot better now. With the weakness in the ankle I have, if the worst happens and too much weight goes on it and too suddenly, my talus and fibula actually hit each other which explains the rather large amount of pain when it used to happen a lot
. Lots of static exercises like pulling my toes towards my body while lying down, and trying to flatten my foot forwards while lying down to get those ligaments back into shape.
When I started my pre-op physio and tried to flatten my feet while lying down, my working ankle went all the way down obviously and my right ankle literally couldn't go more than half-way
But anyway - Yay for rehabilitation and hard work in the gym, and for amazing surgeons
Those tipping Sunderland to go down clearly haven't seen our pre-season performances, or know little of our signings.
I will pay every active forumite 10 english pounds if Sunderland get relegated.
