About 2 weeks ago I sprained my ankle while attempting attempting to jump up a flight of stairs, and ended up jumping off the side of my foot, I ended up crawling back to my car, immediately icing it, and have been keeping compression on it and icing it for a while.
About 4 days after the incident, I could walk on it lightly without too much pain. Now I'm walking on it fine painfree, and I have almost all of my range back. However, it hurts to run on it. (I haven't been full out sprinting or anything like that on it, just an occasional quick jog to see if it hurts.) The question I have is, should I try to lightly (Very lightly) jog on it to try to get back some of the range of motion, or should I just wait longer until it doesn't hurt whatsoever?
This is specifically where it hurts when pressing on it with my fingers, the circle represents the area it hurts, and the arrow shows in which way to apply pressure to entice the pain.
Now the second question is based on prevention. Recently I got new shoes, specifically, Puma Biorides.
Due to having flat feet I put in insoles that are supposed to put arches in my feet, however they place my feet higher(mabey 1/4-1/2 an inch) in a shoe that already have some arch support on it.
After the incident I took the insoles out, and put the old insoles back in. Do you think this would help in preventing another ankle sprain?I also have the shoe completely laced up, would taking the top lace off help at all?
