Things you should know about Ankle Wraps and Supports.

The ankle is a "hinged" joint capable of moving the foot in two primary directions: away from the body (plantar flexion) and toward the body (dorsiflexion). It is formed by the meeting of three bones. Ankle supports and ankle wraps have been shown to greatly reduce sprained and twisted ankle occurance. Our range of stomatex ankle supports and wraps provide great stability and control .

Both provide compressive support with the benefit of therapeutic heat. Both Supports are great for ankle sprain injuries which is a very common condition. Ankle sprains are one of the most common musculoskeletal injuries. Sprains are injuries to the ligaments of the ankle, causing them to partially or completely tear as a result of sudden stretching.

Acute ankle sprains are initially treated with ice, rest, and limiting the amount of walking and weight-bearing on the injured ankle ankle wraps and support can be used to limit movement

. The leg can be elevated to reduce swelling, and crutches are often recommended to avoid further trauma to the injured ligaments
