Best Ankle Support for Sprained Ankles: Aircast A60 Ankle Brace

Tuesday, 17 October 2017

Most people have experienced a twisted ankle at some point or another, whether from a sporting activity or just stepping awkwardly off a footpath. While painful, this twisting motion often doesn't result in a serious injury, but if you notice your ankle becomes swollen and pain continues, you most likely have sprained it. Once you've sprained your ankle, it will be especially prone to more damage while it recovers, so it's best practice to use a brace or support to help your sprain heal, and prevent it from getting any worse.

What is an Ankle Sprain?

Before you jump straight to the treatment of your sprained ankle, it's best to understand exactly what a sprained ankle is, and how to tell if you have one. Simply put, a sprained ankle occurs when you have stretched, or even torn, the ligaments in your ankle. These injuries can range in severity, with the most severe sprains leaving the patient prone to developing long-term joint pain and weakness if it is left untreated.

Most often, these sprains occurs as a result of a rapid shifting movement with your foot planted, such as when you roll your ankle or get tackled in football, causing your ankle to roll outward and your foot to turn inward. This will cause the ligaments on the outside of your ankle to stretch and tear. Less commonly, the ankle will roll inward and the foot will turn outward, damaging the inner ligaments of the ankle.

In either case, these injuries will result in tenderness, swelling, and/or pain, along with bruising and instability in the surrounding area. Once an ankle sprain occurs, the first course of action should always be to treat and stabilise the area with an ankle support.

What Type of Ankle Brace Do I Need for My Sprain?

That begs the question: just what kind of support do you need, and what is the best type of support to help your ankle heal while you get on with your day? At HealthandCare.co.uk, we consider ourselves the top authority around on ankle braces, so we feel more than informed enough to answer that question with confidence. For us, the best ankle brace for sprained ankles is the Aircast A60 Ankle Brace.

With Wimbledon coming up faster than a Greg Rusedski serve and the weather changing from terrible to tolerable, it's time to fish out that old tennis racket from the back of the closet and get back into the swing (pun intended) of tennis. Watching the balletic movement of Andy Murray as he slams a volley at 90 miles an hour precisely into the back corner of the court, you could be forgiven for thinking that Tennis is an easy sport. This illusion quickly dissipates, however, when you're left sprawled on the floor having attempted a simple shot.
