Stay comfortable and minimize pain during physical activity by using ankle supports. Most ankle braces are lightweight and thin so you can wear them with many types of shoes. Ankle supports can help stabilize the joint to prevent twisting, rolling or other straining. Different colors and sizes of lightweight ankle braces are available from OTC Professional Orthopaedic, FLA Orthopedics and Champion.
Safeguarding your ankles
You can choose your braces for ankles based on the level of support you need. Some lace up ankle braces can give you rigid control while still allowing you a healthy range of motion. You can tie the laces as loosely or as snugly as is comfortable for you. Our range of ankle stabilizers also includes supports that are similar to a bandage or athletic tape, but can be less bulky and more comfortable. Some braces can even help to support your arch for added relief. If you've suffered ankle injuries in the past, choose an ankle support that uses compression to reduce swelling and promote circulation.
You can also find braces and supports for other joints and muscles in the aids to daily living section of our home medical department. For your children, there are kids ankle braces in a range of smaller sizes. We also carry thigh braces for muscles and the hamstring, knee stabilizers and wrist braces. To soothe aching joints, there is also a range of heat therapy products as well as arthritis relief.
