I was playing racquetball on Sunday (my off day from lifting), and as I started to roll my ankle I was able to take the weight off, almost in time to prevent an injury, but not quite.
I end up going to the doctor, get x-rays, the usual stuff and there is no obvious brake. The doctor was reassuring the usual mumbo-jumbo, and advised me of course not to lift. Well here it is 48 hours later, and not only has the swelling in the foot increased but it is moving up the leg, the affected leg is now a full inch larger. This is becoming very despairing and I have become increasingly concerned.
So the question is what should I do; should I train upper body to maintain some sort of routine or stay completely out of the gym? Would it be okay to work legs just with leg extensions and curls or should I avoid all leg excercises completely? Finally how do I maintain a positive mindset and mental focus? I see my chiropractor/massage therapist tomorrow and he usually has good advise, but would appreciate any feedback.
