Ankle braces that fit your complaint

Not every ankle brace is suitable for your situation. An ankle brace should fit perfectly and support the correct part of your foot / ankle. If you suffer from your Achilles tendon, instability of your ankle or continuous spraining of your ankle, then a brace for your ankle may be the solution. An ankle brace is a good replacement for tape and gives your ankle a rest when recovering from, for example, an inversion trauma or fracture.

A brief overview of the most common indications in which ankle braces can be used:

  • Instability only
  • ankle / foot fractures
  • prevention
  • only arthrosis
  • ankle sprain / ankle sprain
  • Achilles tendon irritation
  • Footballer ankle
  • Haircut irritation
  • Acute ankle trauma


An ankle brace for ankle sprain or ankle contusion

Ankle sprain and ankle bruise is the most common sports injury in the Netherlands (Schmikkli et al. Sports injuries in the total playing field, NOC NSF 2002).
The overview below shows which actions during sports are most provocative for the occurrence of sports injuries:

  • Running, sprinting, running 290,000
  • Jump 170,000
  • Contact opponent 290,000
  • Turn 130,000
  • Contact object 250,000

In the current guideline of the KNGF (Royal Dutch Society for Physical Therapists), wearing ankle braces is advised from the moment the swelling has subsided. The chance of a full recovery is greater if someone uses an ankle brace for the first 6 weeks after injury. This results in a faster resumption of sports activity. However, wearing an ankle brace is not a guarantee for injury-free sports. Preventive use of an ankle brace significantly reduces the risk of repeated trauma. The EXO-L brace is a good example of this. A custom brace that can only be used preventively.

The ankle / foot is a very complex joint. Via the link below you can get a clearer picture of this joint.

Tape or ankle brace?

The Royal Dutch Society for Physical Therapists has clear guidelines in the field of injuries and ankle complaints. When do therapists recommend an ankle brace and when should you go for ankle tape? Some therapists swear by an ankle brace, others by tape for the ankle. By combining research with practical experience, the Royal Netherlands Society for Physical Therapists has managed to create a clear picture of these two methods to be used. Below is a brief overview of the pros and cons.

Ankle Brace Support

 

Tape for the Ankle

  • In the long term, a brace is cheaper than tape.
  • Within a few hours, a brace gives 4.5-12% less support due to the loosening effect. However, this is easily solved by tightening the brace.
  • Reduces the risk of recurrence of ankle sprain by 40-50%
  • Depending on the brace, it hardly hinders the 'normal' movement.
  • The patient can easily put on and take off a brace.
  • A brace is sufficient when the comfort offered and the support given are in balance.
  • There are different types of braces with different support classes.

 

  • In the long run, tape is a lot more expensive than a brace
  • Tape provides 40-50% less support within a few hours due to the loosening effect
  • Reduces the risk of recurrence of ankle sprain by 40-50%
  • Obstructs 25% more the 'normal' movement of the ankle
  • To apply sports tape, a professional often has to be involved. In addition, tape is more difficult to remove after the sport activity
  • Tape can be adapted more easily and better to individual needs.
  • The use of glue increases the risk of skin irritation

Wear an ankle brace while exercising

Ankle braces are widely used by athletes. A brace used for sports should give as little hindrance as possible. A sports brace or sports bandage is generally slightly smoother and slimmer in shape. Football, hockey, tennis, badminton, volleyball and handball are sports where ankle braces are frequently used. The A.S.O. ankle brace, for example, is very suitable for football players. The Aircast A60, on the other hand, less so, because of the ball feeling. The latter, on the other hand, is often used by hockey players and tennis players. High demands are placed on sports braces. Should the ankle brace be durable? Can the brace get wet? How long can I wear the brace? These are questions that we are happy to answer for you in order to make the right choice.


Do my ankle muscles weaken when wearing an ankle brace?

It is a myth that wearing ankle tape or brace leads to muscle weakness in athletes. An average Dutch footballer only sports two to three a week. This is equivalent to being active for about 4-6 hours. While playing football, the tape or brace acts as an aid to avoid creating peak loads on the ankle straps, thereby preventing new ankle injuries. The muscles around the ankle are stimulated enough not to relax. Wearing a brace provides protection but does not immediately weaken the muscles.
