Two very common ankle injuries are inversion (when the ankle rolls in) and eversion (when the sole of your foot faces away from your other foot).
While some inwards (called pronation) and outwards movement (supination) of the ankle is required for normal activity, excessive rolling can cause serious ankle injury. The ASO Ankle Brace is designed to allow some movement of the ankle but the special lace-up design prevents excessive rolling, reducing the risk of an inversion or eversion injury (what is commonly called an ankle sprain).
Some examples of how an inversion or eversion injury may occur include:
- Landing on someone else's foot during sport
- Stepping on uneven surfaces (such as the edge of a footpath)
- Not planting the foot properly during activity (or even getting out of bed)
The ASO Ankle Brace is one of the most popular ankle braces in the world. It is very popular with people who are trying to get back into normal activity but who want to take reasonable steps to prevent re-injury. Ankles can take a long time to heal properly and the ASO Ankle Brace can provide that extra security during sport, activity or normal daily routine.
The ASO Ankle Brace is the preferred choice of medical professionals for preventing and treating chronic ankle sprains in athletes and it's also widely popular with physiotherapists and the general public.
This ankle brace is the preferred product of over 250 American professional and college teams because of its quality, performance, and durability as a lace up ankle brace. ASO ankle braces feature a thin lace-up nylon boot with patented nylon "figure 8" straps that supports the ankle in a neutral position to effectively prevent an inversion or eversion ankle sprain injury.
The stabilizer straps (velcro style) can easily be re-tightened even if you're wearing an athletic shoe, and the elastic cuff effectively secures the rest of the brace around the ankle. The ASO ankle brace is an excellent alternative for people who woiuld normally tape their ankle and the brace comes with medial and lateral stays to enhance the overall support of the product.
The removable plastic stays enhance protection against a repeat ankle sprain, and provide effective treatment following an acute sprain. The ASO ankle brace has remained the most popular sports ankle brace among college athletic teams and is the best model for use with sports such basketball, netball, football and soccer.
ASO ankle braces can be worn after an acute ankle sprain or as a preventative product to protect against repeat inversion and eversions during sport.
The ASO Ankle Brace is made in the USA to very strict manufacturing guidelines to ensure consistent quality.
