As you all know, Im a semi-professional football player who has some left ankle difficulties.
I have suffered various sprains, had a bone spur surgically removed and have a lot of loose
ligaments etc in the area. It feels as it is mildy arthritic or im suffering from mild tendonitis.
I think I might go visit my ankle surgeon soon to see what he thinks...
At the moment I do ankle mobility drills and foam rolling almost every day. I also
use a strassburg sock a couple nights a week.
Question is: would is to be ok to take some ibuprofen once a week before my weekly game?
Would this have any long term side effects? Would it benefit me long term? Would it help recovery
or just mask symptoms? I would be only taking it once a week for about 25 weeks straight.
I already take fish oil and Im thinking about trying out curcumin.
Thanks in advance.
