Can't put weight on my ankle

While practising karate, I kicked my opponent's knee with my ankle region. It's been 5 days. While walking, I experience a little pain and can't walk for too long. Should I stop exerting my ankle by walking too much? If there are any exercises I could do at home to get better, it would be of great help.

Thank You.

What's needed is a diagnosis of the injury; if it's resolving of itself, then fine, just be careful for a bit because the pain goes away faster than it heals.

If you're still having difficulty walking, it's now two weeks since you wrote, then it's time for a professional opinion.

You'll find the alphabet exercises at our ankle pages, or using the search function.
