I did some test hikes a bit later on easy terrain with my high-top boots tied extra tight ... and even then I had a couple of minor ankle twists and rolls.
I am curious what people think of orthotics. I am considering them.
Also, I have tried a therapy of my own: when standing I will balance on my "bad" foot and in doing so, work the muscles in that ankle and foot, hoping it may mitigate future feelings of weakness and a tendency for the foot to want to turn and roll. It seems to have some positive effect.
Any other ideas? I am sure this problem is quite common!

I google transated it and got "ortoser", which is a nonsense word...
what exactly are you people talking about?
it sounds almost as the instep raiser is closest, by the posts?
