Recovering after surgery on the ankle, whether it's treating ligament damage, a bad fracture or even some arthritis, can be a long and sometimes painful process. Wearing an ankle brace after surgery is an effective way of managing the various symptoms and issues that affect the joint, and can shorten your recovery time.
Bauerfeind have a wide range of post-op ankle supports for any patient. From splints to sleeves and a mix of the two, we've got you, and your ankle, covered.
Why do I need a brace if I've already had surgery?
When it comes to physical injuries and issues, there's rarely a single fix. Even surgery involves rehab, exercise and proper follow up therapy to ensure its effectiveness. Using a medical brace clinically proven to be effective in improving rehab and recovery and alleviating pain in the ankle post-op means you've got the best chance of an effective long-term recovery.
