Exercising is great for your health and it can be a lot of fun too. Unfortunately, one common occurrence in physical activities isn’t fun and can significantly affect your health: injuries.
Ligament damage is one of the most common injuries particularly for people who play sports such as football, soccer, and basketball, but it can also happen to runners and during many other activities.
One way you can “support” your body is trying to prevent these injuries by wearing a brace, tape, or sleeve in certain areas of your body such as knees, ankles and calves.
Braces can be extremely beneficial especially for those who have suffered an injury before. Not only it can help prevent another injury but it can also help healing the previous injury. Knee braces can help you keep playing your favorite sport, minimizing injuries as well as pain and discomfort during and after activity.
Same can be said about calf sleeves. Many people have injuries in the calf area when playing sports. These injuries can range from mild to very severe. One of the most common injuries is a calf strain, a tear of the muscle fibers of the muscles at the back of the lower leg. A pain relief sleeve can help increase blood flow to your skin and muscles, reducing pain, stiffness, swelling and fatigue.
Lastly, let’s not forget about ankle injuries. One of the most common injuries in indoor sports, ankle injuries can happen in many ways such as sudden movements where the foot is perpendicular to the direction of movement or when the foot tilts too far inwards or outwards. Most ankle injuries happen when ankle ligaments, mostly the relatively weak outer ligaments, are stretched or torn. An ankle brace or even taping the ankle area can help to accelerate healing and reduce the risk of re-injury.
