Frequently Asked Questions:
Are ankle supports good for sprained ankle?
Ankle supports and braces are a useful tool to use when recovering from a sprained ankle. When resting your ankle following a sprain, an ankle brace will assist in controlling the amount of swelling, along with adding stability whilst the affected ligaments begin to recover. Once your ankle has recovered to a point where you can begin partaking in physical activity again, wearing an ankle strap for a sprained ankle can help you in feeling more confident when completing such tasks, by adding the additional support that is needed. In severe ankle injuries, this process of optimal loading should be under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
Will an ankle brace help arthritis?
If you suffer from the swelling, stiffness or pain that arthritis in the ankle can cause, elasticated ankle braces and supports may help to combat these issues. Elasticated braces help to support the joint, which may reduce your pain and swelling. Reducing swelling should improve the range of motion in your ankle and your balance. The most conclusive evidence for the management of ankle arthritis is exercise and advice from a healthcare professional.
Can you sleep with an ankle brace on?
It is recommended that an ankle brace is not worn whilst sleeping, as you will be at rest and the laws of gravity will naturally reduce the amount of swelling around the joint. However, depending on the severity of your ankle injury, in some instances your doctor may advise you to wear your ankle support, brace or compression sleeve whilst you sleep.
