Ankle Braces for Sports

I was keeping time for an ultimate frisbee tournament this weekend and I was surprised at the poor quality ankle supports and make-shift taping people were using. Like any sport with lots of running and quick turns, ultimate frisbee players put a lot of strain on the ankles. A rolled ankle or slip in the mud can lead to ankle sprains and tenderness… which no athlete wants.

I found myself suggesting that these players check out some of the ankle braces available on BetterBraces.com. Here are some of the bestselling ankle braces:

DonJoy Velocity Ankle Brace – One of the best ankle braces on the market – provides maximum support and like-custom comfort.

Aircast Airsport Ankle Brace – Ideal for ankle protection during all types of physical activity.

Aircast A60 Ankle Brace (also available in white) – Protects your ankles at their weakest point to help prevent ankle rollovers and ankle sprains.

DonJoy Stabilizing Ankle Brace – A more consistent and effective alternative to ankle taping.

One of the most important things I suggest to people is to make sure you protect your joints during physical activity. I’ve personally witnessed so many unexpected injuries that might have been prevented with a bit of protection.

P.S. Always check with your doctor when treating injuries so they can determine the best solution for your situation.
