Back in June I heard a "pop" in my ankle after a swing. As it being my birthday and playing a nice course, I finished the round on the injured foot. (terrible idea)
1.5 months later I thought everything was recovered and tried swinging again. "Pop." Same muscle.
Two weeks ago, I started practicing with gentle swings and spikeless running shoes. The injured muscle seems to be doing ok. However, now other muscles around the ankle ache in day to day life. They don't hurt when swinging - just when I'm walking around. On a scale of 1 - 10, the pain is probably a 1.5. Nothing serious.
This picture shows the injury location, and the motion that injured it
I think it is the anterior talofibular ligament that was strained/torn.
Left foot. I am a right handed player.
Suggestions as to recovery exercises?
Should I wait until it feels 100% to play again? Right now it feels like it's at 80-85%
