Gymnastics is a popular sport that places the ankle joint at risk for injury. Jumping, tumbling and kicking movements can cause serious injury, and the chance for re-injury is high when athletes return to their favorite routine without adequate support. If you’ve suffered ankle pains or a sprain from not landing properly then a gymnastics ankle brace could help reduce the chance of a re-injury.
Tumbling and landing movements cause great amounts of stress on the the ankles and feet making them easy targets for suffering ankle sprains and fractures. Overuse injuries are a major concern as well because gymnasts do not have an off-season to allow their bodies a chance to rest and recover. With a long season, the use of an ankle brace for gymnastics can provide support and protection for the ligaments surround the ankle.
