Best Basketball Ankle Braces

WHY SHOULD YOU WEAR AN ANKLE BRACE WHEN PLAYING BASKETBALL?

 

High impacting movements such as layup shots and ankle breaker dribbles in basketball, make ankles highly prone to injury. Wearing a Bauerfeind ankle brace, such as the Malleotrain or Sports Ankle Performance will help prevent basketball ankle injuries.

We recommend investing in a good ankle and knee brace to help prevent an injury which can keep you off the court and on the sidelines for months. Basketball has one of the highest rates of ankle injuries. Research has found that when players wore a stabilising lace-up ankle brace, they were 68% less likely to become injured than those who did not.

    WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON INJURIES IN BASKETBALL?

    The most common ankle injury in basketball is ankle sprains. Basketball players are at high risk of ankle sprains due to jumping and lateral movements of the foot while running on hard court. Depending on the level of damage to the ankle ligament, the three grades of ankle sprains are:

    • Grade 1: Mild sprain. Ankle joint will experience soreness and mild swelling.
    • Grade 2: Moderate sprain with a partial ligament tear. The ankle joint remains swollen for a coupleof days and the ankle is very painful.
    • Grade 3: Severe sprain with a complete ligament tear. Heavy swelling and severe pain in the ankle joint.

    Other commonly caused ankle injuries include ankle fractures and ankle tendinitis.
