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. The quick movements, sudden stops, and sharp changes in direction can put a lot of strain on the lower body. While the injuries are mostly mild, your chances of getting injured in a rugby game are never zero. The most common injuries in rugby are:
- Should dislocations
- Ankle sprains
- Collar bone fractures
- Knee ligament injuries
- Muscle strain injuries
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. While the braces protect your ankles from stretching and overloading, you can move freely on the field by wearing boots over them. 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?
Wearing ankle braces is pretty common in rugby, as well as other sports. These braces can help you recover faster from ankle sprains, acute ankle injuries, and ligament damage by offering the right amount of compression on the injured area. Also, wearing braces during a rugby match keeps your ankle stable and protects the joint from injuries (such as ankle sprain, rolled ankle, strain on ligament, etc.).
