Whether it's from sports, running, walking or even dancing, an ankle injury can really hinder your life and cause annoyance. Our range of high quality ankle braces and support products. Whether your recovering from a slight sprain or from ankle surgery - we have all the solutions.
Ankle injuries occur when the joint is twisted too far out of the normal position, resulting to strain and damage on the tissues in the area. The ankles are involved in virtually all aspects of movement, supporting the body’s weight when a person is running, jumping, pivoting or walking, so most injuries occur during sports activities. However, it is not just athletes who are at risk; merely walking on an uneven surface could cause ankle injury. The severity depends on whether the affected ligaments were merely stretched, or partially or completely torn, or whether there is a fracture. Ankle pain can be debilitating, which is why an ankle brace could be handy.
Wearing ill-fitting shoes or high heels could also force the foot out of the normal position. Tripping, falling, awkward landings after jumping, sudden impact, twisting and rolling the ankle could lead to injuries as well. Arthritis and gout also cause pain in the area. Achilles tendonitis also causes pain; it is the inflammation of the Achilles tendon which runs from the heel to the calf muscle. Overuse, degeneration, misalignment, and accidents can lead to the condition.
Various ankle braces have been designed to provide support, stabilization, and compression. Wearing ankle support not only prevents injury; it also helps a lot in managing pain and in hastening recovery.
Sports ankle braces are recommended for those who frequently engage in demanding activities that might overwork the ankles, such as in sports. They have sleek stabilizers on both sides of the ankle, positioned at a 60 degree angle to protect the ankles against sprains and rollovers. The fit could be easily adjusted. Some could even be worn inside modern sports footwear, such as those for tennis and football.
