Unstable When Standing

You’ve indicated that you feel unstable or like you are going to fall over when you stand with both feet carrying the same amount of weight.

This is an indication that you could have structural damage in your ankle and requires that you visit an orthopedic doctor as soon as possible.


Don’t attempt to exercise or rehab until you have visited the doctor to confirm or deny that you have structural damage.

This is one case where ‘pushing through the pain” can cause you to injure yourself more seriously and may even result in you needing surgery to repair the damage.

Again, to repeat. If you feel unstable when you are standing with an equal amount of weight on each foot, you need to visit an orthopedic doctor immediately.
