    Let me start with I hope your imaging went well and your pain free and riding! That being said this is like the TV show you donít really like but has you hooked! What was the diagnosis?

    Ankles can be tricky. I've recovered from more sprains than I can count, some serious enough to have me on crutches for a couple of weeks. Never even went to the doctor for those. A couple of years ago though I popped something in the front of my ankle playing squash. Walked it off and finished playing. Tried playing again a couple weeks later and couldn't - knew something wasn't right. Waited a few more weeks and finally went to see the doctor. An MRI showed that I tore the anterior tibialis tendon, which runs from the arch of the foot up the front of the shin. It was torn about half-way through and was able to heal on its own after a month or so in the boot. Interestingly the MRI also showed that 2 of the ligaments in my ankle had been completely torn through in prior injuries. Funny how your ankles can just become a mangled mess of tissue and still manage to function OK, albeit with a bit of snap, crackle, and pop when walking.

    That's funny. I remember always being confused over mercurochrome and merthiolate and never knowing which was going to go on my wounds as a kid growing up. Maybe they were essentially the same thing, just like today there are various derivatives of Neosporin.

    Honestly... I wish we could still get the sulfur powder as it really worked well to dry up cuts and scrapes. But I heard that it can be used for criminal activities. Not sure exactly, but in Jamaica, during the '70s, it was taken of the retail shelves.

    Incredibly effective as a chigger repellent. Easily ordered online, but should be available at a place like Callahans or at a garden supply; it has a lot of applications in the garden.

    Starting with tendonitis caused by overuse of my anterior tibialis, I have fought left foot distress for ages. My podiatrist Craig Tomajan mentioned Graston massage, which I discussed in a thread years ago. A little known remedy for stressed muscles like tennis elbow and plantar fasciitis Sounds really painful, but it's not that bad.Graston is usually associated with a chiropractor who uses the original tools and is certified. I have one in Bastrop who is the best I've had. I have had close to a hundred treatments to remove excess stress everywhere, ankles mostly. My problems stem from overuse of lower legs and generally tight muscles, especially calves. I wonder how I could have gotten so tight!!!!! Mobilization of the ankle helps and most chiros do it. I also have a therapist that reprograms compensatory muscle problems and see him regularly here also. The therapists I have are not overpriced and I trust tham all. But then I live here. Hope to get back to visit soon on a Monday and/or Tuesday.

    Oh, can I PM you to get the contact? Generally, I think that nowadays you should insure your health...

    Well, I'd also like to get his number, if he works now. What about injuries? I have a cool (perhaps not cool) story. I recently decided to earn some money in Uber, and even there I was injured. I bumped into a green BMW, which was driving at a red light. I thought that was my end of this life. The accident was pretty serious, so I decided to use the services of the uber accident attorney los Angeles to be sure to get my money back. Btw, I was also offered for medical care. Therefore, I, too, will already insure everything that is possible.
