Ankle injuries are a common occurrence for runners given the pounding the ankle takes on pavements, roads or even rocky trails. The ankle plays an important role in shock absorption and synchronises naturally with your foot as you move forwards and your foot flexes back and forth.
Ankle injuries can arise from losing balance and stumbling/falling, whilst other more chronic issues can arise from overuse, often having knock on effects to the achilles tendons.
Do seek professional medical advice if ankle issues persist or worsen but if you have a ‘niggle’ why not try an ankle support? It may be a sensible interim measure, often runners carry on training only to find they encounter compensatory injuries elsewhere higher up the leg. All of these runners ankle supports listed here are well reviewed on Amazon and trusted by runners and walkers alike.Table could not be displayed.
