Sprained ankle? Get some support

Neo G Ankle Injury Guide

The ankle joint is a complex part of the body and takes a huge amount of pressure every single day as we walk and move around. High impact sporting activities such as football or skateboarding can place additional stress on the joint and one wrong move can result in a nasty strain or sprain. Even simple everyday things like running for the bus or walking down the stairs can sometimes result in an injury.

An ankle sprain is the result of a ligament surrounding the ankle joint becoming injured. There are several ligaments that make up the joint and ankle sprains are graded from 1 to 3 based on the severity of the injury. Most sprains will result in swelling or bruising and you may find that you cannot put weight on your foot.

If you think you have sprained your ankle the first thing you should do is consult your doctor or physiotherapist to assess the damage and decide on the best method of recovery. They may recommend a support/brace to help protect and stabilize the ankle. Neo G offer a range of ankle supports with various levels of compression and different features.
