Walking down the stairs

Posted , 2 users are following.

10 months since my awful sprain and it still hurts when I'm climbing down the stairs. I can't put enough body weight on the injured leg. Going up is almost no problem. So how much time does it usually take to get normal? My doc said I'll have to deal with it forever. 😦

    Well, 

    I hate to say this, but you just might be unless physical therapy heps to get it stronger. I broke mine a year ago, February the 2nd and it still is stiff and sore and swelling. I'm sorry to hear that just a sprain is causing you the same kind of aggravation.
