How long to strengthen ankle?

Hi all,

I have had problems with both ankle over the years, I play football (soccer) and have had multiple sprains etc.

For the last two/three years I have used ankle supports on both (stupidly)

I want to get rid of them but I'm worried about injury. How long of exercising and strengthening my ankles before I could remove the supports?

    have you seen a doctor to make sure there is not an underlying problem? he may be the one to tell you what exercise you need.
