Sports Medicine Basics: Foot & Ankle Braces
Reduce discomfort with the help of the latest foot braces and ankle braces.
These sports medicine essentials are used to aid in muscle strains, bruising, contusions, weak joints and a variety of non-severe ailments. Select from a variety of supports, braces and wraps to choose the one that’s right for you.
Compression braces are designed to contour to your body with a graduated fit. This snug fit helps boost blood flow to stave off fatigue and aches and pains post-training. Adjustable braces allow you to customize the fit and level of compression. Some come with adjustable straps or a lacing closure.
Ankle braces help support a comfortable alignment of the foot and ankle. These devices are used to treat ligament sprains, muscle strains and unstable joints. Look for a brace that is designed to ergonomically fit your joint.
Your brace, support or wrap should be constructed with smooth, breathable fabrication for comfortable wear. Antimicrobial technology helps prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria during use.
Do not use an ankle or foot wrap or brace to cover an open wound, and consult a physician before attempting to treat an injury. Shop ankle braces and foot support from brands like Mueller® and Cramer®.
