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.
