The Many Benefits of Wearing Ankle Support

An ankle support is a garment which is worn around either the ankle or for rehabilitation while enabling it to heal properly from fractures and other minor injuries. Ankle supports are made from several materials including plastic, metal and textile materials. Ankle supports can be custom-made to fit an individual's foot type and to provide relief for pain and swelling. Ankle supports also come in various forms such as over the knee, inside the ankle, under the ankle, around both ankles, in-between the ankle and calf area, and even on the back of the ankle. They can be made to fit the needs of the patient very closely.

An ankle support is beneficial to many people who suffer from a variety of injuries including plantar fasciitis (also known as heel spurs), Achilles tendonitis, bursitis, corns and calluses, fractures, ligament sprains, tendonitis, and shin splints. These injuries usually cause an individual great discomfort as well as physical limitations. Most ankle supports can be worn to bed and even while working. Wearing an ankle support while sleeping can also help a person avoid severe discomfort due to bed sores.

In some instances, there are other conditions which require the use of an ankle support while waiting for surgery. Arthroscopic surgery usually requires the use of a brace while healing. The brace can prevent the bone from healing into a deformed state, leaving an open sore or possibly leaving a wound which will have to be treated with an open wound treatment. Wearing an ankle support while waiting for orthopedic surgery to fix an injury such as a fracture can help reduce swelling and possibly make the healing process faster.

Ankle supports are also often used after plantar fasciitis has been treated using a brace or other support. The plantar fasciitis typically inflames the tissues that are in contact when standing and walking. Wearing an ankle support immediately following surgery can speed up the healing process. This is because plantar fasciitis often results in a long period of stiffness and immobility, making walking and exercise difficult.

People suffering from sports-related injuries such as ligament sprains, tendinitis, and shin splints can also benefit from wearing an ankle support. These injuries often occur when a player has to change direction quickly, turn quickly, or jump. These types of movement stress the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Athletes and nonathletes alike who play these sports can experience these types of injuries on any given day. Using an ankle brace during practice can help reduce the risk of sustaining an injury during athletic activities.

People who suffer from more serious injuries such as broken bones, tendinitis, and spinal cord injuries may also benefit from ankle support. Ankle supports do not provide any therapeutic benefit for broken bones or other spine injuries. However, they do significantly reduce the amount of swelling that develops due to an injury. Wearing a brace after an injury dramatically slows down the development of new bone, collagen, and soft tissue. This allows the bones to heal at a normal rate, which prevents additional injury. Ankle supports also reduce the amount of inflammation that develops as a result of an injury.

There are many benefits to wearing ankle braces. Many doctors recommend wearing ankle supports during athletic events to help prevent serious injuries. Athletic trainers use ankle supports when preparing athletes for strenuous activities. During football games and basketball games, ankles are often twisted and can lead to serious injury. Furthermore, during soccer and baseball games, players often suffer from swelling and bruising due to repetitive physical contact. Wearing ankle support while walking or running decreases the amount of damage to the ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

In addition to wearing ankle braces, there are many additional protective measures that you can take to prevent injury. For example, keep your shoes on all the time, even if it is only during the summer. If you wear high heels or flip flops, make sure that your feet have extra support so that they do not overheat. You can also prevent injury by taking the proper steps when learning proper running technique and always wearing a support shoe.
