Hi, I'm looking for some advice. Almost 15 years ago I seriously sprained my ankle (foot dislocated itself at 90 degrees sideways and ankle hit the floor hard whilst leg was still upright!), then not so long after that we started a family and drumming got pushed to the side a bit (a lot). Anyway my 10yr old daughter has started to play the drums and it's got me itching to get back in to it, the trouble is even after 15 years of exercising and trying to get strength back in to my right ankle there is just none there and I literally can only play the bass drum for a few minutes before the pain becomes too much. Playing heal-up helps a bit but it's just so frustrating! One thing I was considering doing was getting a double bass pedal and learning to play left-foot bass drum instead, although this would restrict my hi-hat style. Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas?
