Ankle Brace Overview


Ankle Braces are designed to manage specific conditions and injuries; everything from simple strains, ligament damage and post surgical rehabilitation. The main focus is protection, whether offering compression to manage inflammation and pain or providing structural support for continued mobility.

Following any ankle injury the key objective is getting back onto your feet as fast as possible. The use of ankle braces can help to speed up recovery time when used in conjunction with other rehabilitation methods, such as physiotherapy. The technology behind them allows the patient to stay mobile longer, with the brace itself offering compression to the affected area which can reduce pain and inflammation. Ankle braces work to create support without limiting control and motion of the ankle joint.

ASO


The ASO ankle brace’s remarkable support, fit and economy has made it the sports medicine professional’s choice for effective treatment and prevention of ankle injuries. The brace mimics the strong support of ankle taping but is comfortable, easy to put on, and reusable. The ASO Ankle Brace fits easily and comfortably into a normal athletic or street shoe and its patented, non-stretch stabilizing straps actually mirror the stirrup technique of an athletic taping application.
