Ankle Supports – Everything You Need to Know

Posted

When it comes to exercise and fitness, it’s vital that you do everything in your power to protect yourself. The ankles for example, are some of the most vulnerable parts of the anatomy during high-impact exercise, which is why ankle support, braces, wraps, and other pieces of support in general, are so beneficial. If you’ve ever experienced a sprained ankle, or any other form of ankle injury, you’ll know how incredibly painful it can be. Recently however, with all of the advances in modern technology, products like Phiten’s ankle support, braces, and wraps, have been found to provide more benefits than ever before. Here’s a more detailed look at ankle support, as we look at the benefits, before looking at some of the more popular products Phiten has to offer!


Discomfort relief – The key benefit of ankle support, braces and wraps in general, is that it offers you discomfort relief. Whether you have suffered a recent injury, or if you’re trying to push through an existing one, ankle support, braces and wraps are effective. By alleviating the pressure placed on the ankle,the less discomfort the individual is likely to experience.


Discomfort prevention – Another advantage we’ll be looking at today, is preventing discomfort. It’s all well and good treating an injury, but ideally you want to prevent discomfort from occurring. In one study conducted by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, it was found that Football players wearing ankle braces, were 61% less likely to suffer from acute ankle injuries while out on the field. This was regardless of their size, age, athletic ability, or level of competition.


Popular forms of ankle support – Now that we’ve looked at the benefits, let’s take a look at some of the more popular forms of ankle support, braces and wraps currently available from Phiten:
