Best Ankle Braces For Soccer

HOW AM I ABLE TO PREVENT OR AVOID AN ANKLE INJURY WHEN I PLAY SOCCER?

Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or ankle support can minimise your chances of a soccer injury by providing enhanced stability, proprioception and moisture-wicking medical-grade compression. Some of the most common forms of injury while playing soccer include sprains, strains, shin splints, stress fractures, runner’s knee and IT band friction syndrome. Falls, incorrect landing, over-exertion, fatigue, overuse, collisions with other players and sudden impact are common causes of injuries. Bauerfeind ankle braces help to promote blood flow with the use of our 3D weaved medical grade compression, something not found when using simple neoprene sleeves and braces. An ideal support is the Bauerfeind MalleoTrain S ankle support for soccer, which provides an alternative to strapping. This added support will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to run down the field, control the ball, dribble and kick goals.

 

 

HOW TO TREAT A SOCCER ANKLE INJURY

  • Stop the activity the triggered the pain, and rest the area. Trying to ‘work through’ the pain will only make your symptoms worse and delay healing.
  • Regularly apply ice packs in the first few days to the affected area to help reduce swelling and pain. Severe or persistent tendonitis should be investigated by your doctor.
  • Corticosteroids. Sometimes your doctor may inject a corticosteroid medication around a tendon to relieve tendinitis. Injections of cortisone reduce inflammation and can help ease pain.

    Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent tendonitis pain.
