Ankle braces are also worn to prevent ankle sprains

The best way to prevent an ankle sprain is to strengthen the ankle via physical therapy

Peroneal tendon strengthening is recommended

The strengthening is done using a Exercise Band

After an acute ankle injury, a rigid ankle brace is suggested.

A soft ankle brace, several weeks after injury is comfortable and gives you some feedback to help decrease ankle sprains and swelling.

Finding an ankle brace you can be active in and supportive to prevent a new ankle sprain is a great long term goal.

It is important to do the physical therapy part of treatment and not just rely on the brace for long term results.

Wearing a rigid ankle brace for more than a few months can actually cause ankle weakness.

Your body will rely on the ankle brace to prevent rolling and the muscles will weaken.

Light weight ankle sleeves are used right after an injury to control edema. They are also good for the late stage in recovery.

The ankle brace gives your body feedback to pay closer attention to the ankle and decrease risk of injury.

Since they are soft, it is much easier to move around.

The sleeve is less bulky.

The next line of braces are known as the Rigid Stirrup Type.

These ankle braces will provide more support and a higher degree of inversion prevention.

They feel light and allow the ankle to bend up and down in a natural way.

Sometimes a half size larger shoe is needed.

These ankle braces provide ideal support during the healing process after an acute ankle sprain injury.
