US Soccer Darling Alex Morgan Struggling with Ankle Injury
If you aren’t familiar with Alex Morgan then you might recognize her from the latest issue of Sport Illustrated Swimsuit Edition! She is one of 3 athletes that were chosen to be in the newest issue! View some of the images on Alex's Instagram here: http://instagram.com/p/kkMIs3lWwa/
That’s right FFA bloggers, this soccer darling is not only awesome on the pitch, but she can really sport a bikini too!
Unfortunately, Morgan has been suffering from an ankle injury since late October. Check of this latest interview with her, discussing her chronic bone bruise and her coping with being sidelined: http://www.soccerbyives.net/2014/02/recovering-timetable-recovery.html
Morgan is known for her lightning speed and having an eye for the back of the net, not only her good looks! So ever since this injury the US Women’s National Team hasn’t had her on the roster for any of their recent matches.
She has been donning a CAM walker, the same ones we offer to our patients. This grey boot helps immobilize her ankle joint to aid in the healing of her bone bruise, and as far as I can see, she has been a pretty compliant patient by using her crutches and even wearing her CAM walker to a wedding where she was a bridesmaid!
