Why Ankle and Knee Braces are Evil

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

Okay, before I go any further let me first say that I really don’t think ankle and knee braces are evil. I actually think they are a valuable tool in helping get people back to doing what they love and keeping them healthy. But who is going to read a blog called ‘ankle and knee braces are good in some situations but not the best in other situations’? ☺

What has started me on this rant is seeing an athlete coming back from injury being sold a brace and given the impression that it is all they’ll ever need. Even more bothersome is when I see studies like the one in a recent issue of Foot & Ankle International, that indicate healthy female volleyball players should wear rigid or semi-rigid ankle braces in order to prevent ankle injuries.
