I’ve done some damage to my ankle and am looking for something to support it while it recovers by preventing it from rolling over etc.
Been looking at Ankle braces like the 661 Race Brace
Anyone used one or know a different type they’d like to recommend? How do they feel when riding in them?Posted 9 years agomrmichaelwrightMember
tape it like jedi says
don’t wear a brace for too long, a far better way of helping your ankle is to (you might look a bit silly) stand on one leg as much as possible!
i’ve had the 661 brace and it did more harm than good, the plastic inserts are uncomfortable and just caused pain elsewherePosted 9 years agoGWMember
I can’t ride without one – although my injury wasn’t my ankle it was my foot (smashed). – nearly a year in plaster, couple of years of physio and still gives me greif. it’s luck that the 661 brace works so well TBH (combined with Ibuprofen) – think the strapping sounds far more appropriate for your injury too.Posted 9 years ago
I’ve just ordered one… I suppose I’ll see how it works – if it doesn’t I’ll try the tape.
Got a problem where when I land on it I keep injurying it, not necessarily rolling it over just heavy impacts. Mainly when I’m landing and put my foot down to steady me. Last time I did it I felt it go and it was just I landed slightly off balance.
Physio confirmed a brace would assist while it is healing – so going to give it a go.
Got two days of riding coming up Sunday and Tuesday and want to make sure I can ride both!!
Thanks for the comments – very much welcome.
Jedi – see you Sunday for some Interaction!!Posted 9 years ago
