How can I best deal with a severe ankle sprain and associated recovery?

About a month ago, I had a mishap on some stairs and ended up with a third-degree sprain of my left ankle. I've got what is apparently a very long recovery ahead of me, and I'm already going insane. I need some tips and tricks to make the next few months more manageable. [more inside]

How to exercise: the bad ankle edition

I am currently waiting for ankle ligament reconstruction surgery, but still want to keep as active as possible in the meantime. My two main ways of exercising - riding my horse and playing soccer weekly - are now out of the question, what else can I do to maintain some level of activity that doesn't involve using my injured ankle too much?

Should I excercise my damaged knee or should I baby it more?

I have an ACL injury from a motorcycle accident two years ago. I have noticed in the past 6 months it has gotten much worse. Should I excercise more or less? I don't have health insurance and have no way to get physical therapy at all and have already exhausted all free health-care options. [more inside]

Upper body aerobics?

I tore a ligament in my ankle last night, and it looks like I'll be in a cast for at least three weeks. I hate to skip the gym for three weeks (I've been slacking off enough as it is, and I'm trying to lose weight). Are there any aerobic exercises that don't involve your legs and don't require special equipment? Something other than just throwing punches in the air? Thanks.

What to expect with ACL reconstruction surgery?

I am having ACL surgery in 10 days. I'm looking to get some more information on the surgery, people who have had the experience under spinal anaesthesia, and recovery times. I've found some blogs, but looking for more. I'm also looking to hear about how long people were required to wear the Zimmer splint, or similar products, assuming all went well in the surgery, and physio. Thanks! ^^
