Worried Mom

My 13 year old daughter just started conditioning for her middle school cross country team, she has had about 5 practices. they run about 3miles and then do agility training like wall sits and running up and down steps. Well after her last practice she complained that her ankle was really hurting, that was on a Friday, I had her put ice on it and gave her some Motrin, I thought that her ankle would have time to rest over the weekend because they didn't have practice, and she said it did feel better, but now today (Monday) she had practice and is once again saying her ankle hurts???? I am not sure what to do. What do you think??

Hello Worried Mom

It's really hard for me to diagnose the injury, so I am not going to even try.

I will say this... At a young age, you should always error on the side of caution. I would rest it some more and ice like you have been. Perhaps you can talk to the coach and ask if she can bike alongside the runners for a while instead of running.

Maybe she bikes this week, and gives it a shot again next week.

I am a middle school cross country coach and I had a runner with the same problem last week. So this week, he is biking along side the team. His ankle does seem to be feeling better because he asked if he could jog the course yesterday. He noticed the ankle pain after we ran the hills on Thursday of last week.
