Need the Best Ankle Support

SHARE

I am prone to inversion sprains. Had a severe one this year. Took me out for two months before i could even think about playing basketball again. i have always worn some type of ankle brace. I’ve tried them all. Air casts, lace ups, stirrups. I have issues with all of them. my last injury took place while i was wearing an aircast. Thanks but no thanks. I used the ASO Lace up but it cut off circulation and cut into my skin on the lateral underside of my foot at the end of the fabric. Stirrups are what i am leaning towards to now. I just don’t know. I’m so sick of researching the various braces, i wish i could just lay them all out in front of me and try them on like i was trying on shoes. What would you suggest? I play hard, i need the best. What’s the best technology for me? Please help, i’m desperate. Thanks

  1. Hi, I too am prone to severe ankle sprains. In addition, I have tried everything that is out there with limited success. I found that the air stirrups have given me the best support; nevertheless, I also find them to severely restrict my movements on the Court. At the suggestion of Physical Trainer, I am going to try the old elastic slip-on, with the only modification being that I use the size below mine. (i.e. my shoe size range is 11 to 13, but the elastic slip-on will be for 8 to 10 range.) I will advise you of both my trial and hopefull success. Good luck Ray

ThanksI too was sick of the other braces, so I spent 2 years researching and them 7 years testing and developing the best ankle ‘shock absorber’ ever.Try before you buy if you like, but as a full on ex pro ball player myself, I know this is what you need.
