WHY SHOULD NETBALL PLAYERS WEAR AN ANKLE BRACE?
Netball players are at a high risk of ankle injuries due to the high impact of the jumping movements on hard court. The inward and outward rolling of the foot can further increase the risk of an ankle injury.
Some of the most common forms of injury when playing netball include ligament tears and sprains, Achilles tendonitis, Achilles bursitis and inflammation.
Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or ankle support can help you in preventing or avoiding an ankle injury through enhanced stability, proprioception and medical-grade compression.
To prevent ankle injuries caused by twisting movements, wearing a Bauerfeind brace such as a MalleoTrain S or a Sports Ankle Support Dynamic can be beneficial. It is an effective alternative to strapping and provides additional support to stabilise the ankle joint.
AUSTRALIAN NETBALL PLAYER WEARS ACHILLOTRAIN TO TREAT ACHILLES TENDON
NSW Swifts midcourter Claire O'Brien was on the sidelines for up to 12 months after she completely ruptured her right Achilles tendon at training. She underwent surgery and missed a full year of Super Netball.
Take a look at O'Brien using the AchilloTrain in her training sessions to treat her Achilles tendon rupture and get back into the game with reduced pain and swelling.
Bauerfeind ankle braces help to promote blood flow with the use of medical grade compression, something not found when using simple neoprene sleeves and braces.
