Rugby is a high contact sport that can cause serious injuries to some parts of your body, including your ankles. The most common ankle injuries in rugby may include inversion ankle sprains, ankle fractures, metatarsal fractures, Lisfranc fractures, and more.

A metatarsal bone breakage is referred to as metatarsal fracture, and torn ligaments in the midfoot area can lead to Lisfranc fracture. Pain is the primary symptom of all these injuries; however, severe conditions may make you feel tenderness, numbness, and difficulty walking. When you feel any symptoms, you should leave the field and consult your GP to diagnose the causes of pain. A physical checkup will help your GP diagnose the symptoms. They may press the injured areas and move your ankle or foot in several directions to check the range of motion.

Some radiological tests, such as X-rays and MRIs, will help determine the extent of the damage. The initial treatment may include some conservative measures: plenty of rest, ice massage, compression, physiotherapy, and over-the-counter medications. In case of stress fractures, your GP will suggest potential surgical treatments.

It is advisable to wear ankle supports to protect your ankles from stretching and overloading. Professional trainers allow wearing ankle supports as long as you play on the field. To wear ankle supports following an ankle injury, you need to wear them for your healthcare provider’s prescribed amount of time.

Ankle supports are of different kinds according to individuals’ needs. You can find lace-ups, hinged, and hinged cuff ankle supports. Lace-up ankle supports are made up of fabric that may or may not  wrap around straps. Hinged ankle supports are semi-rigid plastic shells with wrap-around straps; however, hinged cuff ankle supports can be flexible or semi-rigid shells with straps.

As well as this, professional rugby trainers also come up with some effective preventive measures to avoid the chances of ankle injuries on the rugby field. Warming up your body is the primary measure; however, you should also perform some stretching exercises regularly to keep your ankle or foot flexible.

Ankle supports are also different according to their sizes, materials, and support level. It is better to take your healthcare providers’ help to choose the right product for you. 360 Relief provides you with the best ankle support to help manage your ankle pain.

Experts suggest wearing ankle supports under socks for maximum compressions and pain relief. But if you feel uncomfortable, you can wear athletic socks under the ankle supports.

Can An Ankle Brace Hurt My Ankle?
