Find the Best Ankle Brace for the Type of Support You Need
The most common injury to the ankle is a sprained ankle. Other more serious injuries include tendonitis, dislocation, and even broken or fractured ankles. Weak ankles can often cause instability which increases your chances of twisting your ankle from walking or stepping on uneven ground. Increasing ankle support with an ankle brace while you play sports can help decrease your chances of injury. If your ankle is currently injured, in pain or swollen, an ankle wrap or sleeve can help give you added support and compression as you heal. If you have previously injured your ankle, continuing to have ankle support while you participate in activities is beneficial for helping stabilize your ligaments and preventing future strains.
