Ankle Sprain Brace

July 6, 2018 @ 10:38 am posted by Brace and Support Help

A wrap around figure 8 ankle brace is a better treatment option for an ankle sprain than ankle taping or an ankle stirrup type of brace.  Tape comes loose.  If you’re an athlete that ever had an ankle taped you know it feels great when first applied.  The tape provides protection and support.  But as you start running and jumping the tape gets loose and all that stability is lost.  A figure 8 ankle brace has laces, so just like a sneaker, the brace can be made more tight or loose depending on how your ankle feels.

A wrap around figure 8 ankle brace works by controlling the heel.  Control the heel, stabilize the ankle.  These ankle braces easily fit in a sneaker or work boot.  They are easily washable and very comfortable.  These braces provide the maximum amount of protection and stability, are easy to clean, and adjustable.

Pediatric Ankle Brace

January 16, 2014 @ 1:16 pm posted by Brace and Support Help

Pediatric Ankle BraceSo your little guy twisted his ankle?  Is it a sprain?

Pediatric ankle sprain symptoms can include:

  1. Ankle pain, bruising, and swelling
  2. The pain gets worse when your child walks, stands, presses on the ankle, or moves the ankle
  3. Can’t move the ankle without pain.
  4. If there was an audible pop (ouch!)

Not every child with a sprained ankle has to go to the doctor. However, you should at least call your doctor if there are any of the following:

  1. Can’t move the ankle
  2. Can’t put weight on the ankle
  3. Pain over the bony part of the ankle
  4. Can’t walk without pain
  5. Pain not relieved by ice, pain relief medication, bracing, and elevation
  6. Numbness in the leg, foot, or ankle
  7. Pain that does not improve in 5-7 days
  8. If you are uncertain about the injury

Some kids will do just fine with rest, ice, compression, and elevation.

  1. Rest – get your kid off his feet.
  2. Ice – ice for ten minutes at a time
  3. Compression – A pediatric ankle brace can help a lot
  4. Elevation – raise the ankle while icing it (prop it up with a pillow)

Ankle Brace

 

Ankle braces are a great alternative to taping sprained ankles.  The benefit over taping is that ankle braces can be adjusted throughout the game you’re playing or sport you’re participating in.  Most ankle brace are applied over your socks so skin irritation and break down is not an issue.  The sizes correspond to your shoe size.  Ankle braces generally mimic taping for stability, and also provide warmth and compression.  Ankle braces are an inexpensive treatment option for chronic ankle pain.
