In a contact sport like Rugby, there is always a risk of injury. Even though most of those injuries are mild in nature, they can still disrupt your career. Wearing protective gear like ankle braces helps you reduce the risk of injuries to your ankle by stabilizing the joint. As you make sharp turns, awkwardly plant your foot while running, or step onto an irregular surface during the game, your ankle experiences a lot of strain. However, the additional support from the braces can help counter such strains and keep the joint in a safe position.
Unlike the traditional braces that restrict your ankle’s natural range of motion while stabilizing it, the Vero Ankle™ braces offer dynamic stability. The BioMemory™ material in the braces stretches dynamically and returns to its original shape while tensioned, ensuring your ankle remains flexible within the safe range of motion. When your ankle gets more stability and protection, you can focus more on the game and help your team win it.

Anyone who has used Vero Ankle™ braces for rugby knows how effective they are during practices and competitive games. Our rugby ankle brace is designed under the supervision of top ankle surgeons for maximum ankle support and comfort. The breathable material used in the braces allows proper airflow to the ankle region, preventing sweat buildup and skin irritation. The Vero Ankle™ braces ensure that you don’t feel uncomfortable wearing the braces.

The elastomeric boot in our rugby ankle brace functions a lot like the modern-day running shoes. When put under pressure, they store and release energy to give you an additional boost. Also, the Vero Ankle™ braces come with a low profile, allowing you to wear your favorite rugby boots over them. These braces are also easy to maintain. You can clean them using warm water and soap and air dry them after rinsing the soapy water. These are some of the reasons why top athletes recommend our rugby ankle brace.

Fit and Function

Since rugby is a fast-paced sport, you need to sprint, jump, slide, tackle, and do more to score for your team. In such scenarios, you cannot trust an ankle support that loses effectiveness in the first few minutes of the game. Also, if your rugby ankle support does not fit you well, you won’t get the necessary support, leaving your ankle susceptible to injuries. This is where Vero Ankle™ braces stand apart from the competition.

The elastomers used in the braces replicate the shape of your feet to give you a snug fit every time. It feels a lot like wearing an ankle sleeve. Also, the Velcro strapping system allows you to put on and take off the braces without any hassle. If you feel the braces are not providing enough support to the ankle, you can add or remove padded inserts from the braces to get the right level of support.

FAQs About Ankle Braces for Rugby

Can an Ankle Brace Prevent Injuries in Rugby?

One of the major reasons for wearing ankle braces is to prevent injuries like a rolled ankle, ankle sprain, ligament injuries, and more. The braces wrap around your ankle and provide additional support to the joint. As they offer more stability to your ankle, you are less likely to roll or twist your ankle beyond the ankle’s safe range of motion. So, yes. Wearing ankle braces can help prevent ankle injuries in rugby.

What Are the Most Common Injuries in Rugby?

In a contact sport like rugby, injuries are quite common, and they can range from mild to severe.

  • Concussions
  • Should dislocations

Can an Ankle Brace Fit Comfortably in Rugby Boots?

If you want to wear ankle braces under your rugby boots, you need to make sure that the braces have a low profile.

The Vero Ankle™ braces are designed for maximum comfort and can be worn underneath boots. You can even remove padded inserts from the braces for the right level of support.

Is it Common for Rugby Players to Wear Ankle Braces?
