The ankle is one of the most heavily loaded joints in the body because it supports and transmits to the ground, the entire body load at every step. A series of ligaments support the ankle. Ligament injuries, e.g. tearing of the medial or lateral ligaments of the ankle, are the most common injuries of the ankle joint. They usually occur due to bending or twisting of the foot, and result in pain and restricted movement. Swelling and bruising can also occur.
Juzo® braces and orthoses accelerate the healing process for ankle joint injuries or discomfort. They also protect and stabilize the joint, thereby improving joint mobility. Special purpose ankle orthoses immobilize the injured joint and support the healing process.
