The LP Ankle Support With Straps is an ankle brace that supports and compresses a weak, injured or unstable ankle joint. It will also reduce swelling and/or stiffness after experiencing an injury.
The brace is equipped with a Velcro secured open toe and heel design which allows you unrestricted range of motion. Additionally, its use of adjustable straps ensures a wearing comfort. The low profile design of this support permits a comfortable fit with all types of footwear, whether street or athletic.
The LP Ankle Support With Straps is manufactured using high quality closed cell neoprene. There is also a stretch nylon cover for added comfort. The neoprene provides optimal compression for your ankle. It also helps the support to use the heat from your body to warm your ankle and improve blood circulation through the joint. This will reduce stiffness, swelling and inflammation and speed your recovery.
When Is The Use Of The LP Ankle Support With Straps Recommended?
We would recommended this brace for those who are experiencing weakness or instability in their ankles and who require mild to moderate support for the joint. The types of activity for which this support is suited would be e.g. chores around the house, going for a walk or performing non physical occupational duties.
We would not recommend it for use with high intensity sporting activity. This is particularly true of activities that involve running, jumping or sudden changes of direction. These types of activity will place more stress on the ankle and require greater support.
If you have a history of neoprene allergies, you may prefer an alternative support such as the LP Extreme Ankle Support.
