Ankle Braces

This is an email I just received from a great tennis player and dad!!

Dr. Blake,

What ankle braces do you recommend?  I have been wearing the lace up type on my left ankle only, but I rolled my right ankle yesterday which proceeded to swell quickly. I have been using ice and compression and the swelling is down.  I realize now that if I want to continue playing tennis, I will need to wear one of the right ankle as well.
Thank you for your recommendations.



Hey Steve (not his real name since he is in witness protection), 

     I love the ASO Ankle Brace and this is the one I use occasionally when my old injured ankles are at risk (like on the basketball courts).


  1. great post. Thank you for sharing. I love your post.

  2. There are many different types, each designed to manage specific conditions or ailments, therefore selecting the correct ankle brace can be difficult. If you are ever in doubt as to which option you should opt for you should speak with a clinician.
