Ankle Braces for SportsSome of the most common sports injuries are ankle sprains or rolled ankles. This area is especially at risk during athletic activities because your ankles support the weight of your body while running, turning, jumping and landing. Ankle injuries occur often in football, basketball and soccer, because of all the quick changes in direction and speed while playing these sports.
Wearing an ankle brace for sports may help reduce your chances of injury and also support your ankle if you suffer from chronic ankle sprains. In fact, the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine revealed in a preliminary study that wearing ankle braces significantly reduced the chance of ankle injuries in basketball players. This same ankle protection likely transfers to other sports as well.
