HOW AM I ABLE TO PREVENT OR AVOID AN ANKLE INJURY WHEN I DANCE?
Dancers can perform hundreds of jumps in a single dance class, so it’s no surprise that ankle pain is a common problem. Many dancers assume pain and sometimes injury are part of the process, but ankle problems are neither inevitable nor untreatable. Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or ankle support can minimise your risk of developing a dancing injury by providing enhanced stability, proprioception and moisture-wicking medical-grade compression.
Some of the most common forms of ankle injury for dancers include Achilles tendinitis, ankle sprains, shin splints and heel spurs. A particularly popular ankle brace amongst dancers is the MalleoTrain S Open Heel support due to the ground contact. This added support will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to jump, axel, pirouette and perform.

“MY 12 YEAR OLD GRANDDAUGHTER HAD A STRAIN TO HER ACHILLES TENDON. SHE’S AN ACTIVE BALLET STUDENT WHO DOES OVER 15 HOURS A WEEK. WITH A LITTLE REST AND BY WEARING HER BAUERFEIND ANKLE BRACE FOR A WEEK OR SO, SHE IS NOW BACK TO HER BALLET.”
