HOW AM I ABLE TO PREVENT OR AVOID AN ANKLE INJURY WHEN I AM PLAYING TENNIS?
Tennis involves a lot of repetitive footwork, and this combined with fatigue can increase your risk of injury. Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or ankle support such as the MalleoTrain can minimise your chances of injury when you’re stopping and starting on the court through enhanced stability, proprioception and medical-grade compression. Some common forms of ankle injuries when playing tennis include ligament tears and sprains, Achilles Tendonitis and stress fractures. Bauerfeind Ankle braces help to promote blood flow with the use of medical grade compression, something not found when using simple neoprene sleeves and braces.This extra support will help to stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to serve, volley, smash a ball and win your next set.
