Each time you roll, twist or sprain your ankle, excessive strain is put on one or more of the ligaments in the joint. When the roll is particularly bad, or happens repeatedly, it can become chronically strained or even torn, leading to instability, pain and swelling.
Wearing an ankle ligament brace helps not only in recovering from the injury and relieving the symptoms, but also protecting the joint and reducing the risk of further damage. Bauerfeind have a wide range of ankle supports for ligament damage, no matter the injury.
How do these support my ligaments?
The ligaments in your ankle work to stabilise each and every movement, making sure the bones move in the right way and keeping you upright. Our supports work to emulate those actions and the stability of those ligaments when they've been injured and can't perform their normal function. Combining this with our medical grade compression means that your surrounding muscles work better to take over and compensate for the weakness in the joint.
What makes these products better than others?
Simply put, Bauerfeind have set the global standard for medical braces, compression and insoles. Using the highest quality materials to construct decades-refined products that have been clinically proven to address a vast range of issues. There's no substitute for quality, and Bauerfeind have that from the simplest strap to the largest brace.
How long do they last?
Bauerfeind's high quality construction and design mean that all of our products go the distance, especially when cared for properly. Below is a rough outline of how long products last before they start to lose their effectiveness over time.
