FAQs about Ankle Braces for Baseball
Why Do Baseball Players Wear Ankle Braces?
Wearing braces during a baseball game can help reduce the chances of ankle injuries. Apart from throwing the ball, fielding, and hitting it, baseball players need to sprint and slide quite often to reach the bases. During such activities, their ankles go through a lot of stress and may become susceptible to ankle sprains or other acute ankle injuries. Ankle braces help stabilize the ankle joint, preventing it from rolling or twisting beyond the safe range of motion.
What Are the Most Common Injuries in Baseball Players?
The injuries in baseball games can range from mild to severe. However, the mild ones can also keep you out of the ground for a few days to several weeks. Some of the most common injuries in baseball include:
- Torn labrum
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Shoulder instability
- Ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injury
- Wrist tendonitis
- Pitchers elbow
- Knee injuries
- Ankle sprains
How Can I Prevent or Avoid Injury While Playing Baseball?
In order to prevent or avoid injuries while playing baseball, you need to practice the following measures:
- Learn the proper technique to hit and throw the ball. Also, perfect the sliding technique while reaching bases.
- Warm up properly before throwing.
- Participate in baseball strength training and conditioning programs.
- Take breaks in between the seasons to give your body enough time to rest and recover.
- Engage in other sports to ensure the same muscle groups are not used all the time.
- Also, wear protective gear while playing the game. Wear a helmet, a pair of gloves, ankle braces, shin guards, etc.
How Do I Care for My Ankle Brace?
If you use Vero Ankle™ baseball ankle braces, you can hand-wash them with warm water and mild soap. Rinse them well to ensure there is no soap residue on the braces. You should air dry the braces and avoid exposing them to direct heat. Drying the braces in direct sunlight can damage the materials.
Is it Advisable to Wear Ankle Braces on Both Ankles While Playing Baseball?
If you are recovering from an ankle sprain or injury, your physician may advise you to wear an ankle brace on the affected ankle. However, if you are using baseball ankle braces for improved stability and reduced risk of ankle injuries, you can wear them on both ankles. While lace-up braces can restrict your mobility during the game, you should consider wearing ankle braces with adaptable hinge features.
