Protect Your Ankles this Running Season

Jun 27, 2019

It is is no mystery that running is one of the most high-impact activities out there. After all, a few laps around the track can equal to hundreds of steps where your entire weight is just on just one leg! This type of repetitive impact can put a runner’s ankles at risk of injury if not properly tended to. That is why Bauerfeind has an ankle brace specifically designed to protect your ankles this running season.

 

 

WHAT CAUSES ANKLE INJURIES?

When it comes to running, ankle injuries can be caused by a variety of things. However, most common ankle injuries usually stem from repeatedly loading the ankle joint or from an unstable ankle that results in a sprain. Without proper protective gear, runners are at a higher risk from these types of painful ankle injuries.
