Ankle supports?

My 15 year old daughter plays competitive volleyball. She has never had a serious ankle injury (only sprains). What’s the prevailing theory on wearing ankle braces? Should she wear braces to prevent injury and risk weaking the ankles or she not wear braces on her normal, healthy ankles until there is an injury? Is it true that braces even weaken the ankles?

  1. As you know at volleyball games there are a lot of players wearing ankle braces. Sometime the whole team.Some players only wear the braces during competition and wear nothing during practice so that their ankles won’t get weak. With football players they have taped up their ankles even before there were ankle braces on the market.Ask the Athletic trainer. Usually the decicion is left up to the individual.
