The ankle ligament tearing often happens during exercise, but occasionally also during daily activities. As soon as the tension on the soft tissues becomes too great - for example due to a slip or trauma - it may be that the structures located on the sides become stressed. The ankle straps may tear in or out. An ankle brace offers a solution to support the healing process of your ankle.
The ankle consists of three bone parts; the fibula, tibia and the hock. The tibia and fibula together form the ankle fork. The hock lies between the ankle fork and is the beginning of the upper hock. The two protruding bone parts (of the ankle fork) are called the malleolus. The ankle straps run over the protruding bone parts. The ankle straps are stiff, sturdy band structures located around the ankle. With a torn ankle strap, the foot has been 'tilted' further than maximum. With torn ankle bands, the pain is often extreme and a large ovoid bump forms on the outside of the ankle.

As soon as an ankle joint makes an unexpected movement in which the ankle tilts more than maximum, the ankle straps are tensioned. If the tension on the ankle straps becomes so extreme, the ankle straps may tear. Torn ankle straps can be caused by many different ways. Someone can get lost at, for example, a step, curb or a hole in the grass. Also, someone can end up wrong during his jump.
Make sure the ankle is cooled with ice. Pay attention! This only makes sense within the first half hour after the injury started. Then it is important that the foot recovers. In the beginning it is important to reduce pain and swelling to avoid intra-articular tension as much as possible. This can be done by holding the foot up and resting the ankle. In the beginning you will have to walk a lot with elbow crutches . The swelling will subside after a few days. As the swelling subsides, it is important to let the foot recover (recovery can take 4-7 weeks). An ankle brace can be used to support the ankle. Such ankle bandages can provide extra support during recovery. ProBrace can advise the following braces for torn ankle straps:
