FAQs about Ankle Braces for Hockey
Can an Ankle Brace Prevent Injuries in Hockey?
Wearing ankle braces during a hockey match can provide your ankles with some level of protection from ankle sprains and injuries. However, they cannot guarantee the complete prevention of injuries. The ankle braces only offer external support to the ankle joint, ensuring it does not roll or twist awkwardly. The ankle braces keep the joint stable, which reduces the risk of ankle injuries. Poor technique, lack of warm-up, and loss of concentration during the game can still cause injury to you.
What Are the Most Common Injuries in Hockey?
In a game of hockey, you need to make quick turns, sprints, and trunk movements, which can put some strain on the lower body, especially your ankles. Also, there is a massive risk of getting blows from a stick or a ball. This is why the risk of injury is quite high in hockey. Some of the common injuries in hockey are:
- Ankle sprain
- Hamstring strain
- Back pain
- Quadriceps contusion
- ACL injury
- Dislocated shoulder
- Shin splint
- Cuts and bruises
- Fractures in hand
How Tight Should the Ankle Brace Be for Hockey?
In a hockey match, you should choose an ankle brace that offers a snug fit. If your braces are too loose, you won’t get the necessary support on your ankle and may end up spraining it. On the other hand, if the brace is too tight, the blood (and oxygen) supply to your ankle may be cut off, causing a medical problem. So, find an ankle brace for hockey that fits your ankle perfectly. The adjustable design of Vero Ankle™ braces helps you get the perfect fit.
Can You Wear Ankle Braces in Hockey?
In a contact sport like hockey, your ankles become susceptible to sprains and injuries. It is recommended to wear ankle braces to reduce the risk of ankle injury and provide additional support to your ankle joints. Also, if you are recovering from a previous ankle injury while participating in a game of hockey, the braces can protect your ankle from further injuries.
