I am a ballet dancer, still student, living in stuttgart. I am in the John Cranko ballet academy. I come from Italy and I studied in La Scala ballet school for three years. I've been having a problem in my ankle for two and a half months now, and none of the doctors or physiotherapists I've seen, seem to actually now the exact problem. Everyone has their own theory!! I've done MRI, X-ray, and ultra sound scans and I don't have anything irregular, except for the an over stretch in the ligament in the front part of the foot, which is normal for a dancer, as in pointe or demi pointe you need a stretch in the ligament to stretch full out!
I've been told it is an impingement, with an inflammation, so I did traumeel injections, laser therapy but it still hurts. It like clicks and gets locked sometimes, but other times stretch it and I feel no pain. In the MRI there are no alterations in the tendons or ligaments, and in the x ray (in demi pointe lateral) there is space for my foot to stretch in pointe. So why does it hurt?
Please, i need a good doctor to help me, if you know anyone in Germany, or Italy who knows exactly what to do, plkeas please let me know!!!!
Thank you soooo much,
