Hinged Ankle Brace for Volleyball Players
Ankle sprains are extremely common in volleyball as well as other physical activities. A roll, twist or awkward turn of the ankle can either tear or stretch the ligaments of the ankle that are needed for stabilizing the joints and making sure the ankle does not move past its normal range of motion.
In most cases an ankle sprain can be treated through conservative treatments, such as taking over-the-counter pain killers, engaging in physical therapy to improve the strength, flexibility, range of motion and balance of the ankle once the swelling has subsided and wearing some sort of ankle support to prevent one from reinjuring the ankle when one gets back to normal activity of sports.
Initial steps for remedying ankle instability often involves engaging in strength exercises aiming at enabling other muscles to compensate for the instability created by the loose ligament(s). This is often done in conjunction with ankle taping or the use of an ankle support, such as the hinged ankle brace for volleyball ankle support.
Unfortunately, this is not always enough to repair the injury. In such instances, surgery may be considered. Following surgery, one will need to wear a plaster splint, followed by a cast or awalking boot. An ankle brace with hinges is sometimes used as a transition orthotic as one moves from a boot or cast back into everyday activity and sports.
