Ankle Braces and Supports
The ankles are one of the most commonly injured areas of the body because they support your weight while you run, jump, turn and pivot. In essence, your ankle is involved in almost all aspects of movement. Wearing ankle braces designed to protect the ankle can help reduce your chances of injury. Ankle braces are ideal for athletes and those who simply just need some extra ankle support. If you've sprained or injured your ankle in the past, you may be more susceptible to injuries in the future. (You can learn more about ankle sprains here.) Wearing ankles braces and supports may help you prevent these injuries. Check out our wide selection of ankle braces and supports today:
Ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries seen amongst individuals in all age groups; in fact, roughly 25,000 people sprain their ankle a day. Sprains can occur when participating in regular daily activities and range in a levels of severity. For instance, stepping on an uneven surface or awkwardly losing your balance can both in fact can lead to severe sprains. If swelling occurs, pain is felt when pressure is placed on the ankle, if you felt a “pop” when the initial injury happened, there is a good chance that you may have a more severe sprain than you thought. With that being said, not only is it highly imperative to care of your injuries effectively, it is extremely important to efficiently monitor and properly care for your ankles, and all of your joints for that matter, before an injury actually occurs. You can get more information on proper care for other joints that may be easily susceptible to everyday injuries such as your knees here.
There are times where a sprain can cause an excruciating amount of pain which may lead you to wonder if you may have actually broken your ankle or not. A sprain can actually be difficult to differentiate from a broken bone or fracture without an x-ray, but if you have injured your ankle and are unable to bear any weight on the injured joint or if there is a significant amount of swelling and/or change in the shape, you should seek medical attention immediately to rule out the possibility of a fracture or break. Most ankle sprains will not require surgery, if taken care of properly, and minor sprains are generally best treated with a proper brace and/or rehabilitation program; all of this depends on the amount of ligaments injured and the grade of your sprain. On that note, let’s take a look into what a sprained ankle actually is:

A sprained ankle can be described as one or more ligaments on the outer side of your ankle being either torn or stretched when an injury or strain occurred in the region of the body. Typically the ankle is rolled outward or inward when the actual sprain occurs; these are known as an eversion or inversion sprains. When the pain originates on the outer side of the ankle, chances it is the most common type of sprain, an inversion sprain. On the other hand, if the pain occurs more along the inner side of the ankle may actually indicate a more serious injury to your tendons or even the ligaments that support the arch; if your pain is felt more in the outer region of your ankle, you will always want to be seen and evaluated by a medical professional.
Properly treating your sprained ankle can help prevent any chronic pain and/or instability that can develop over time. For a general sprain (class or Grade 1) there are basic guidelines that should be followed to properly manage your injury. Always rest your injured ankle as often as you can (remember, rest means do not walk or put pressure on your ankle). If necessary, crutches can be used and if there is not a fracture involved it can be safe to put some weight on the leg. An ankle brace will also highly assist your healing process as well as by monitoring the pain. The ankle brace generally will control the swelling while simultaneously adding stability to the healing ligaments. If you are suffering from a sprained ankle it is important to also remember to ice your injury, this will help keep the swelling down. Do not put ice directly on the skin however, use a thin piece of cloth between the ice pack and your skin and try not to ice it any longer than in 20 minute intervals. Compression can also help substantially control the swelling and support and immobilize your injury. Finally, elevating the foot will reduce swelling as well as decrease the pain. You can elevate your foot properly by reclining and propping it above the waist or heart to insure its effectiveness. Any injury to your body should be evaluated and treated properly to ensure there isn’t any long term damage, ankle sprains especially.
