The ankle joint refers to the connection between the foot and the lower leg. Even though we normally only talk about one or the ankle joint, it actually consists of two sensitive joints, the upper and lower ankle joint. It is held together by ligaments that are put under a lot of stress, especially during jumps, impacts, abrupt movements and, of course, when you twist your ankle. Many injuries and irritations of the ankle joint therefore often occur during sports.
Wearing a brace can significantly increase the stability of the ankle joint and the ligaments and thus prevent injuries. However, a bandage can also be a good support for the healing process after accidents, chronic complaints or after an operation. Depending on which of these functions the brace should fulfill, different models are recommended. In addition, an ankle brace should of course always be adapted to the leg or foot of the wearer so that, for example, there are no chafing points and the blood can continue to flow freely. At Sanitätshaus Ergonomic Care, we therefore carefully measure your foot and advise you free of charge on which support is best for you.
