I recently started playing a lot of basketball - twice per week over the last month - after a few years away from the game and have been experiencing a ton of ankle soreness. The morning after, my ankles are very tight and a little achy for lack of a better description. Does anyone have any recommendations to help combat?
Ive been working in some ankle mobility & stretch routines a couple times per week in the mornings to improve mobility and started doing my short jog/sprint sessions at the beach barefoot as its suppose to improve ankle strength (and generally better for you overall).
Appreciate any insight anyone has. Played a couple pickup games last night and my ankles are killing me this morning.
