Do supports and braces really work?
Supports and braces work by immobilising the joint to speed up recovery while also providing support to prevent further injury. They work exceptionally well alongside rest and treatment from a qualified physiotherapist, helping you get back out on the field in no time at all.
What’s the difference between a support and a brace?
While many use the terms foot or ankle support and brace interchangeably, they work in different ways. Both protect the health of your foot and ankle but supports typically prevent further injuries while braces are used to treat them by immobilising the joint.
When should I wear an ankle brace?
Expert opinions state that braces and supports should be used when you are conducting any activities that may aggravate the injury. It can be worn at other times if you have significant pain or difficulty, but try not to wear it too much as this can have an adverse effect.
Can I wear a foot support all day?
It can be tempting to use a foot support all day when you’ve injured yourself, but overuse of a support can have a negative effect. When your body doesn’t have to work as hard for balance and support, it can make it weaker, increasing your risk of injury. Experts recommend using it during an activity, but if you have questions, a medical professional can advise you.
