Ankle Sprains, Stress Fractures and Foot injuries Increase in Winter

Posted on December 31, 2014 by Core Products There have been 0 comments

Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie snowboarding down the steepest slope or just walking on an icy sidewalk, freezing temperatures and winter weather make for slippery conditions - which makes sense that more foot and ankle related injuries occur this season. Some hospitals report a 500 percent increase in trips to the emergency room for falls and slips alone.

Ankle sprains are the most common leg and foot injury. They occur when you roll over from the inside to the outside of your foot. This movement stretches or tears the ligaments on the outside of your ankle. There are many ways to prevent this from happening. Exercising and stretching help you maintain strength, balance, and flexibility. Wearing well-fitted shoes and firm support also helps.

Our PowerWrap® Ankle Brace provides extra stability and support whether you’re playing sports or at home. The brace is built with our Positive Tensioning System which gives you a custom fit every time without needing to tie any laces or worry about taping.

If the unfortunate occurs and you do wind up with an ankle injury, the PowerWrap® Ankle Brace is also designed for post-injury. The lace design provides excellent compression and outside/inside support while walking, reduces swelling and can help with knee hyper-extension without restricting necessary motion or reducing strength.
