Very Swollen foot caused by rolling ankle

by Summer Holcomb
(Virginia )

I was at camp and I was running across a rock and thought it was just a rolled ankle so i didn't elevate it or anything but it hurt and now my whole fott up to my knee is swollen very badly. Is this normal? It has been like this for two weeks now.

Hello Summer, nice name!

Clearly you have either torn some ligaments, or pulled a muscle in the lower leg.

Usually, at the same time, the ankle mortice or subtalar joints subluxate.

Start by icing it at least twice a day, wear an ankle guard, and make an appt with a chiropractor experienced in treating ankle injuries.
