Sprained Ankle

“I rolled my ankle quite badly recently while moving logs. I have done this before 4 times during my teens and in my twenties. Each previous time my ankle discoloured due to the bruising. This time I did all the usual things (RICE – Rest, ice, compression, elevation) but added putting some Bentonite clay on twice a day (for 5 days) as well just to see what happened. This time I had no bruising whatsoever which was unusual. This roll of my ankle was at the same pain level as earlier rolls and I expected the same bruising. It did swell a bit but not as much as I recall as the other times. I talked to my physiotherapist about it and he said people bruise more easily as they get older. ”
