HOW AM I ABLE TO PREVENT OR AVOID AN ANKLE INJURY WHEN I PLAY AFL?
Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or ankle support can minimise your chances of an AFL injury by providing enhanced stability, proprioception and moisture-wicking medical-grade compression. Some of the most common forms of injury while playing AFL include runner’s knee, hamstring strain, ACL strain, ankle sprain and contusion. AFL is known for its high level of physical body contact. By not wearing any protection except for the occasional mouth guard, players are at a high risk of injury. Common causes include collision, overuse, unstable landings and sharp movement. Bauerfeind ankle braces help to promote blood flow with the use of our 3D weaved medical grade compression, something not found when using simple neoprene sleeves and braces. The MalleoTrain S ankle brace is ideal for AFL as an alternative to strapping. This added support will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to handball, hospital kick, and score goals.
