Ankle Sprains and Basketball Study – Braces work for “virgin ankles” as well as previously sprained ankles


A new study of ankle bracing suggests that you probably should be wearing one during active  sports like basketball or tennis even if you have NOT had an ankle injury:  www.uwhealth.org/news/wisconsin-study-shows-fewer-injuries-among-athletes-with-ankle-braces/31794

The surprise finding was that the bracing did NOT increase knee injuries and DID help with “virgin” ankles – ones that have not been injured before.

I’ll hope to have a lot more information about ankle sprains and other sprains at the website  “MySprain.com“, but it’s not live yet….
