I have some problems with my right ankle (incidentally my landing foot) for the last two years now.
So it wasn't caused by skating (as I only started a year ago) but by a torn ligament.
It never seemed to heal properly as there were always moments of pain near the achilles tendon or even more on the top of the foot.
I am now diagnosed with tendonitis of the tibial tendon. I guess it could have been aggravated by the tight skating boots...
Anyway, my questions now are manyfold
1) Are there ways to relieve the pressure of the skating boot on the tibia tendon?
2) How much does the skating boot generally help against twisting of the ankle? (as I have a light sprain in the ankle as well)
3) If it does not help much: Is it possible to wear a bandage under the boot? And if so - what kind would you recommend?
4) Did anyone hear ever have tendonitis and knows when it is safe to go back on the ice again? I have no pain anymore apart from the times when I stretch my ankle.
Thankful for any tips - an ice deprived Hedwig
