I've had a persistent outer ankle injury for the last 6 months. It's not hugely painful - probably only 3/10 - but it restricts my movement and stiffens up after running, and I'm a little concerned that it hasn't gone away of its own accord.
Physios and chiropracters have said they think it's a ligament strain, but no amount of rest, strengthening, ice or massage seems to help. I'm taking part in the Brighton marathon in April so need to start ramping up my training, but don't want to risk a long-term damage.
I was wondering if it'd be a good idea to have an MRI scan, to determine exactly what the injury is, and therefore the best way of treating it. Does anyone have any experience of getting a scan privately?
