Weak ankles

About a year ago I had a bad sprain on my right ankle that took about 6 weeks to heal. Ever since that time both my ankles seem to get weaker every year. I recently injured my right foot at work, there was some debate over whether or not it was broken. The radioligist says it is broken but the podiatrist the company sent me too says it wasn't broken and returned me to work. Now I have occasional pain in my right foot, but usually when the weather is cool and damp. My left foot has been causing me pain when I walk with tennis shoes or bare foot. It feels as if something is pulled loose close to my little toe. Now, just yesterday I sprained my left ankle pretty badly. My concern is that I never had these problems over a year ago. My ankles have progressively gotten weaker within the past year. As I walk, I often find myself rolling my ankles, inside or out, but usually I can drop my weight from it and catch myself on my other foot, kind of a "stutter step" to keep from falling. I have never been clumsy, I am slightly above my ideal weight. I am 34 years old about 6' and weigh 210lbs. Should I be concerned about something here or am I just having a run of bad luck?

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
