A lot of us do not have the capabilities that we did when we were younger. Whether it be due to injuries, ageing or a particular condition, our joints change over time. The same can be applied to our ankles. As we use them every single day, our ankles can get worn out over time.

There are many ways to overcome this, some tend to go for treatment whilst others use different methods. One way to recover is from using an Ankle Support, which is a great way to recover from injuries, provide support and to improve stamina and stability. 

But are they really worth it? Are the changes noticeable? Will they fix my ankle problems?

These are all very good questions, which is what we are going to discuss in this guide.

What is an Ankle Support?

An Ankle Support is a brace that can be placed over your ankle. Many include a strap for stability so there will be no fear of it coming undone. They come in many different forms but the majority of them are available for both feet, so you can choose depending on which ankle you are having issues with.

They come in different sizes depending on how big your feet are, and fit perfectly onto your ankle. 

What are the benefits of using one?

As mentioned above, there are countless benefits from using an Ankle Support. With many feet/ankle issues going unnoticed, you may actually find that an Ankle Support will be of assistance to you without even realizing. 

Ankle Supports provide stability

For those who are injured, and are worried about further injuring yourself, look no further. Ankle Supports can stabilise your ankle and foot, making walking around whilst injured a lot easier and less painful. 

It protects the ankle from being jolted or made worse, and can really help with those who are a bit more clumsy than others.

Ankle Supports can decrease recovery time from injuries

As for some of the reasons above, Ankle Supports are great for those with injuries. They can also actually reduce recovery time from the injuries. As being there to protect your ankle, it is great for keeping it in the right place making it easier for the muscles/joint to build itself back up.

The compression can also help decrease the swelling of the ankle, as usually blood and water goes to the ankle to support the injury - causing the swelling. With an Ankle Support, you are providing your own support to the joint, making it a lot less painful.

Ankle Supports can boost confidence

If you are not injured, an ankle support is still of use in this way. Whether you are interested in exercising, or just general walking, they can help give you that extra bit of confidence that you are not going to hurt yourself - making life a lot more enjoyable.

Without having that worry in the back of your mind, you can focus on whatever you are doing. Safety is always a priority when doing exercise so making sure that your muscles/joints are stable is a must.

Are knee supports for runners useful

Running is an excellent hobby, with it keeping you in great shape whilst also being fun and enjoyable. It has been a staple exercise since humans first came into existence. Many people have created great careers from running, and it has created many opportunities for us all as it is easy and convenient.

However, it is common to come into complications with running. Injuries happen more often than you’d think, and some people who are injured want to continue running. As it becomes such an important part of our day, we seem to miss the endorphin rush that running brings us.

The past few months have been eventful, to say the least. Being at home has had a big impact on our lifestyles and on our health. As we are entering a new phase of lockdown, many are starting to go for walks and to meet up with friends (with social-distancing measures).


During the lockdown, we have all adjusted to staying indoors, we are now all re-adjusting back to normal. With a lack of movement and fresh air, our health has slightly deteriorated. As life is starting to get back to normal, we must revitalise our health!
