Wearing a lace-up ankle brace can reduce the number of ankle injuries, especially in youth sports such as basketball and football.

Ankle sprains, especially severe sprains, can take a long time to heal – usually weeks, and sometimes months – and can require therapy or more costly treatment.

Also, spraining your ankle can increase your chances of getting another ankle sprain.

Wear an Ankle Brace to Prevent Ankle Sprains

Prevent Ankle Sprains

How can I prevent Ankle Sprains?

Preventing an ankle sprain, or reducing the severity of an ankle sprain, can save you or your child from a long recovery, and possibly from having a future injury.

Lace-up ankle braces give extra support and counteract the turning-in that usually occurs during an ankle sprain. Lace-up ankle braces allow the forward ankle motion that occurs during running and jumping.

Studies show that wearing a lace-up Ankle Brace during high school football and basketball significantly reduces the chances of an ankle sprain in both male and female athletes.

Should Ankle Braces be worn on both ankles?

Yes. Because Ankle Braces are designed to prevent injuries, it makes sense to wear them on both ankles.

Should the Ankle Braces be worn for practice, too?

Injuries can occur during practice as well as during a game, so we recommend you wear the braces for both practice and games.

Will Ankle Braces slow me down?

Lace-up Ankle Braces are specifically designed for playing sports. Most people feel no significant decrease in speed or effort when playing sports using a lace-up Ankle Brace.

If you think that you sprained your ankle, be sure to get it examined and properly treated.

Our goal is to work together with you to minimize your downtime, if any, and get you back on your feet as quickly as possibly. We will also examine your training routine and take measures to prevent injuries from reoccurring. And know this…we won’t stop your training unless it is absolutely necessary.

If you have an ankle sprain or ankle pain, contact our Wappingers Falls office for an immediate appointment and see what your options for treatment are.
