Best Braces For An Ankle Sprain



Ankle sprains occur when the ligaments around the joint are stretched, and can vary in severity depending on the way they are stressed.

At the time of the injury you may experience swelling, bruising or pain in the ankle. Ankle sprains are common in contact sports like Rugby, Soccer and activities such as dancing, athletics, gymnastics.

Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports or braces with medical-grade compression are designed to reduce ankle swelling and provide pain relief.

A cushioned pad is embedded to support both the inner and outer parts of the ankle for extra protection. Our special knit material is very gentle on the skin and allows for a comfortable brace to complement your recovery process.

Take a look at Olympic gymnast Simona Castro wearing the MalleoTrain to protect her ankle from ankle sprains and other ankle injuries.
