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.

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.

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.

Ankle Supports Used by Professionals in the UK

Wearing an ankle support is becoming more popular among professional athletes in the UK. Protection and injury prevention is crucial to ensuring that athletes are able to reach their peak performance levels, every time they step out onto the field or court. Tennis star Andy Murray famously wore an Aircast Ankle Brace when winning Wimbledon in 2016, highlighting to the world the benefits a lightweight, minimal ankle brace can provide.

At PhysioRoom, we stock a wide range of ankle supports that specialise in injury prevention for weak, vulnerable ankles during daily life and sport, and provide support and stabilisation for ankles recovering after injury or surgery. 

Sports Ankle Supports

An ankle support for running and other fast-paced sports is a great investment, as it helps protect your ankle against injury when moving at speed, jumping, and performing rapid changes in direction. These ankle supports feature lightweight, flexible strips on each side to stabilise and support the ankle. The design gives the athlete freedom to move with ease while greatly reducing the possibility of the ankle rolling over. Wearing these kinds of ankle supports after an injury also helps the ankles' healing process, by providing enough restraint to prevent any further damage.

Preventing Further Damage Throughout the Healing Process

Taking care to avoid any further damage is crucial for ensuring a full recovery after an ankle injury. Applying the RICE method is the first action that you should take to help reduce swelling and pain. This consists of Resting, applying an ankle ice pack, ankle compression, and elevating the ankle. This should be done in the immediate term after an ankle injury to help reduce the initial pain, and begin the recovery process quicker.

When building up strength in the ankle, and returning to activity, wearing an ankle brace for walking, or any other everyday activity is a great option to help prevent further injury. Opting for an ankle boot brace is great when recovering from the more serious injuries, whereas a lightweight, breathable ankle strap may be better suited for the shorter term, more common ankle injuries such as a sprained ankle or swollen ankle.
