Ankle Sprains

Manage, rehabilitate and strengthen your ankle injuries

You don't have to be an athlete to turn your ankle and something as simple as walking on an uneven surface can cause a painful, debilitating injury.

Ankle sprains and twisted ankle ligament injury

Ligament damage can be graded into one of 3 classes:

  • Grade 1 - Minor sprain
  • Grade 2 - Minor or partial tear
  • Grade 3 - Severe tear or complete rupture

The most common cause of ankle damage is an inversion injury, where the foot turns inwards and the weight goes suddenly through the outside of the ankle.

Inversion ankle injuries often cause weakness in the joint and a tendency to be more susceptible to re-injury if the muscles are not strengthened adequately post-injury.

How can an Active650 Ankle Support help?

An Active650 Ankle Support can speed the healing process by increasing the blood flow, thus improving the supply of oxygen and nutrients that are essential in repairing the damage. Using an ankle support is recommended by medical professionals as it reduces the stresses that act on the site of injury and helps to prevent re-injury during rehabilitation.

We recommend the Total Ankle Support for more serious sprains and the lightweight X-Over Ankle Support for minor injuries.

Active650 Ankle Supports are super comfortable, lightweight and can be easily worn in your regular shoes for longer periods, with no discomfort.
