Frequently Asked Questions

What are the types of ankle bracing?

Braces generally come in two types, though small variations exist between various manufacturers. A healthcare professional would advise the ideal brace. One type of ankle braces is nonrigid and resembles a thick canvas or nylon lace-up sock. Some nonrigid braces are also made of neoprene. The nonrigid style such as a comfort lift ankle support provides compression to the ankle, may help in injury prevention, and provides stability. The other type of ankle brace is the semirigid type. Its construction is similar to the nonrigid type but with the added feature of molded plastic struts or air cushions. These braces provide more stability and are often used during the rehabilitation following ankle injury.

Most nonrigid and semirigid braces also use fabric straps to simulate heel locks. These are usually on the outside of the brace and fastened with Velcro. A common concern is that prolonged taping or bracing of the ankle may result in weak ankles that are more prone to injury, hence it is important to follow the instructions of usage from a healthcare professional.

What are stirrup style ankle braces?

Stirrup style braces were the first popular ankle braces in the 1990s. Companies have revised the design to allow for customization of the stirrup. Patients can adjust air bladders with a pump and put gel-filled bladders into the freezer or even heat them in a microwave. One can adjust the stirrups by adding metal or plastic strips to increase rigidity for greater control. One can increase the height to accommodate for syndesmosis or tibia-fibula fracture support. Regardless, stirrup-style braces are not in use for sports. They are really alternatives for splints and controlled ankle motion (CAM) walkers.

What Do Ankle Supports and Braces Do?

Ankle supports such as a comfort lift ankle support and ankle braces both protect ankle health, but they do this in different ways. Generally, ankle supports like a comfort lift ankle support may prevent injuries while ankle braces are designed to treat them. There can be some overlap, with some ankle braces offering more versatile use. Because of this distinction, it is recommended you always consult a doctor before selecting an ankle brace or comfort lift ankle support or if you suspect you have an ankle injury.

When to use an ankle brace?

Current research indicates ankle brace use in high school-aged athletes lowers the incidence of acute ankle injuries, but not the severity. Ankle braces are not shown to reduce the severity of ankle, knee or other lower extremity injuries.

Ankle ligaments, muscle and tendon units and the bones of your ankle create the internal supports to keep your ankle safe. These internal supports are important links from your foot all the way up to your hip for ideal performance. Ankle braces serve as the external supports to limit certain motions, such as plantar flexion/inversion (movement at the ankle joint that points the foot downward away from the leg and turns the foot inward), and provide awareness of where your ankle joint is in space. For maximum effectiveness, ankle braces should fit comfortably in the shoes you wear during an activity, which also helps with brace use compliance.

After experiencing an ankle injury, it is important to consider rehabilitation as part of your treatment plan. Often, when an athlete still is having ankle pain or isn’t back to full function, it is because he or she hasn’t allowed for enough time to properly heal. Following an ankle injury, your provider may recommend rehabilitation services or use of a comfort lift ankle support. Balance, range of motion, strength and endurance are important therapy and training factors that rehabilitation providers specialize in for recovery. Performing exercises as directed while using a comfort lift ankle support helps ensure a safe return to activity and lessens the likelihood for re-injury.

Keep in mind wearing an ankle brace is not a 100 percent cure-all or guarantee against injuries. Making an educated decision with your health care provider will help you determine if wearing an ankle brace is right for you.
