Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Where can I buy an ASO ankle brace in Montreal ?
    Grade 3 ankle sprain, so I need to use it for sports.

    • ANSWER:
      Why would want to wear a lace-up brace (its old technology). The best ankle brace is the Zoom Ankle. It has this cool soft shell technology that is really comfortable and supportive. www.zoomankle.com

  2. QUESTION:
    ASO Ankle brace: I ordered the wrong one?
    Okay, so I needed an ankle brace for basketball, and I THOUGHT my shoe size was 9.5, but it turns out my parents had bought new shoes over the summer, and I have been wearing 11 ever since, without knowing it, since I forgot that my old ankle brace had to fit into a bigger shoe to stay. It turns out, I ordered an ASO Brace that is medium sized, thinking that my size is from 9-10 MEN US size, but it’s in actuality 11.

    Do you think the size matters that much? I hope the seller hasn’t shipped the item yet…

    http://www.amazon.com/ASO-Ankle-Brace-Black-Medium/dp/B000RZWJ1Q/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/002-6267110-4671248?ie=UTF8&s=hpc&qid=1194141182&sr=8-1

    By the way, I just went to a shoe store today, and it showed that my foot was about 11.2 size men, which was a surprise, until tonight when I thought about the brace I ordered. =0

    • ANSWER:
      It does matter somewhat, I know from experience if it is too tight it will cut into your skin and cut off your blood circulation. That is not a good thing. I think that your brace will work alright for it is only one size too small. If it was more than that I would say it would not work as well.

  3. QUESTION:
    Which ankle brace is better? ASO or McDavid Ultralight?
    I’m going to be playing recreational basketball, and it starts in roughly 3 weeks. I’ve been recommended to get the MCDavid Ultralight, and another person told me to get an ASO brace. Which is better? They look the same, but is there really a difference? Here’s the link for ASO one:

    http://www.anklebrace.info/medicalspecialties/aso-ankle-brace.htm

    here’s the one for Mcdavid ultralight

    http://www.amazon.com/McDavid-Ultralight-Ankle-w-Strap/dp/B000MVZX18

    Also, what size should I get? Is it Medium? I wear a 9.5 size shoe, men btw.

    I want to be as close to normal speed as possible, and also be able to jump and stop without being really sore.

    http://www.amazon.com/ASO-Ankle-Brace-White-XX-Small/dp/B000RZYODM/ref=sr_1_15/002-6267110-4671248?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1193871586&sr=8-15

    BTW, here’s the amazon link for the ASO one.
    My problem:

    Alright, so I just started rehabbing by doing stretching exercises, with my ankle etc. I’ve been more sore lately.

    However, I’ve had my ankle sprain for over 50 days, and it was a bad one. At times, I’ve been able to run, and then suddenly I would be very sore for a while ( a few days ). My running hasn’t been up to speed, and I can’t stop easily. But then again, that was without an ankle brace.

    Now, I think I want an ankle brace, especially since I’m going to be playing recreational basketball.

    With my stretching the last week or so after I started rehabbing, it seems it’s gotten better, albeit very sore. Will running on a treadmill help? I do exercises, and don’t know what else to do. I also don’t know if I should run on a treadmill with or without an ankle brace.

    If someone can help, please do so!!

    Basically I need an ankle brace that is very protective and will let me return to near normal speed and be able to make turns without getting sore or having problems.

    • ANSWER:
      Based on the descriptions, I would say that you can’t go wrong with either of them. Both look like quality ankle braces, and have very similar characteristics, and are even similar in price.

      You didn’t mention what kinds of ankle problems you have. Different ankle braces help different problems. The best thing to do would be to make an appointment with an orthopedic doctor and ask their opinion, but it’s totally understandable if you don’t want to go through all that just for an opinion on an ankle brace. Maybe get someone to tape your ankle similar to the way the braces are? (Both descriptions claimed to be better than a tape job, but you should be able to feel if the tape technique helps at all). There are dozens of different kinds of ankle braces; you may want to look into them. See the link for a list

  4. QUESTION:
    Which ankle brace is better for football mcdavid ankle braces or the aso ankle stabilizing orthosis brace?

    • ANSWER:
      if you can get your ankle taped i would do that because you can get it to conform more to your ankle, get it to the tightness of your liking, and provide in my eyes more support. If you want to get a brace instead, either are fine but i would buy the aso. I have always like aso braces and recommend them to my athletes when they don’t want to get taped or if they can’t get taped.

  6. QUESTION:
    ASO ankle brace can anyone help me?
    Okay, so, my left ankle is really weak. I used to do dance and i could never do turns on my left leg because of it. Now i am playing netball and have to constantly strap it just to be cautious. I refuse to give up playing sport but i was wondering where i could buy an ASO ankle brace. I don’t particularly want to buy it online and i live in Warragul, Victoria, Australia. I know it won’t be cheap to buy but i don’t want to spend like 0. The cheapest i know which is near me is and though that is pretty cheap, i was wondering if i could find one somewhere cheaper. Also it really has to be an ASO one because that is the one i have been recommended to get by my doctor. Thanks for your help. And if you can help me at all i would love to hear from you. Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve found that taping my ankles gives me the best support and least worries about it happening again. I tried the Swedo brace both with and without those plastic inserts on the side. they’re so bulky and never fit right for me.

  13. QUESTION:
    are aso ankle braces good for football?

    i have an ankle and achilies sprain is the aso ankle suport better for me to wear for football or should i buy something else..

    • ANSWER:
      im not really sure. I played basketball alot and still do, but alot of the times when i sprang my ankle i used to try and walk it off if it felt like it would help to warm up my ankle and reduce excessive pain and swelling. Also I used wear and mcdavid’s. theyre the braces with the lacing that you adjust by tieing them up by the strings. My advice would be to make sure you try to warm up and exercise your ankle first thing in the mourning if you can manage, move it around, walk on it a little and put pressure on it that you can handle, that way its not as stiff and painful. And as far as ankle support, if you feel that aso’s keep your foot secure when your on the field then i would say your okay. Try to wear two pairs of socks on the ankle if it feels a little more comfortable and make sure your foot and upper ankle feel supported as a unit and i think you’ll be fine.

  14. QUESTION:
    do ASO ankle braces look ugly in hightop basketball shoes. Do they fit in them?
    i had just ordered some and forgot what it would be like with a hightop basketball shoes

    • ANSWER:
      They fit in a high-top(Steph Curry wore ‘em, after he sprained his ankle twice in the Hyperfuse, and Ray Allen wore ‘em for a while too(see photo)).

      And it’ll look like you’re wearing 2 pair’s of socks, if you wear crew, or tube socks with ‘em(so basically like your average NBA player).

    im playing basketball and im deciding if i should get one or not
    i have never sprained an ankle but im using it for prevention
    could you also put if aso braces are comfortable and how they feel when your playing

    • ANSWER:
      If you don’t have any history of ankle injury I would not reccommend wearing ankle braces. Just keeping your ankles strong and wearing proper footwear is a much better plan for prevention. Wearing the braces unnecessarily will put you at greater risk for knee injury and possibly other injuries up the line.

  22. QUESTION:
    URGENT!!! I need to heal my twisted ankle in 1 hour?
    Hi, So I twisted or sprained my ankle, and I have training in an hour. There is NO WAY I will get out of training, my parents are very unsupportive, and they refuse to admit that my ankle is hurt. So what I need to know is how can I make it through training with my ankle? I do use an ankle brace during my netball, its an ASO ankle brace. Please please please help me! Thanks!!

    • ANSWER:
      I might be a bit late now but anyway, if you can’t walk on it their is no way you can train, however what you can do to help it is typical rice treatment with ice every 2 hours for 20 minutes. that should get rid of some of the swelling.

      essentially what you want to do is restrict the painful movement, so some ankle taping should help. Do a youtube search for ankle taping for an inversion or eversion injury you should get some hits.

      Inversion is when the sole of the foot is turned in toward the other this is the most common ankle sprain couple with planter or dorsiflexion (planter = pointing the toes like a ballet dancer dorsi is the oposit).

      All you have to do is find out what movement hurt, as this will indicate what ligament(s) are injured and you should be able to restrict the movement to minimise the pain. You can also take some pain killers etc to help. But do not make playing injured a habit it will screw your career, the fact that you already wear an ankle brace shows you push yourself too far.

      When you get to training let your coach know what has happened and ask of you can do another role for the day such as referee or coach some drills so your still involved but not actively.

      and finally when you get back home continue with the RICE treatment for the remainder of the day and the next but start to minimise the rest and incorporate some ankle movements to prevent stiffness.

    Sports Injury Question: Is Pre wrap strong enough to stabilize my ankle or should I go with tape?

    I had a bad sprain in February and it seems there is some ligament or tendon damage that continues to persist. :-) Oh, and no, I haven’t the money to get a scan of my ankle due to a lack of medical coverage. :-)

    • ANSWER:
      Your ankle seems partially recovered and needs some treatment to be totally recovered before you force it to do exercise and work by putting ankle brace on or wrapping with any tape.
      See a professional sport massage, physical, Tuina or deep tissue therapist to release the knots, adhesion, blockages, relieve the pain and speed up the recovery.

  26. QUESTION:
    How to heal a sprained ankle in two days!!! URGENT!!!?
    Hi, OK Yesterday I sprained/twisted my ankle, and I have a netball game on Saturday. That leaves me 2 days rest. How can I be up to top condition? There is NO WAY I will get out of the game, my parents are very unsupportive, and they think there is nothing wrong with my ankle, and I need to be good during this game or they will be angry. I do wear an ankle brace, an ASO one. On the same ankle because I broke it 8 or so months ago. But there is no use telling my parents that it didn’t heal well enough, because they wont listen. So I need to take matters into my own hands by being healed before, or being able to make it through the game. So any way, How can I make it through the game in top condition? How can I heal my ankle in 2 days?? Any Answers are appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Not gonna happen. Try taking either aspirin or ibuprofen every 4 to 6 hours, ice for the first 48 hours, heat after that, elevate the ankle and when you walk on it make sure the brace is tight. For the game you may want to wrap the ankle either before you brace it or after to keep it warm and prevent swelling. Keep the wrap on during the game and then afterwards start ice again and make sure you take pain meds. Just do your best in the game. It is likely you will have problems with that ankle for a while.

  27. QUESTION:
    Ankle Sprain Prevetion – Braces?
    Hi, I apologize in advance that this is a little long. I have a question about if I should wear ankle braces. About 7 1/2 years ago, I sprained my right ankle while trying to learn a tumbling move in gymnastics. It required me to wear a boot for at least a month. Afterward, I went to my high school sports trainer and did exercises and had electrical stimulation of some sort on my ankle. I needed to have my ankle taped up and I wore a lace up ASO brand ankle brace anytime I did gymnastics. After all this time, that ankle still looks a bit “puffier” or “lumpier” than the other one, and has ever since that injury. 2 1/2 years after that, my left ankle gave out while I was playing tennis in gym class and I ended up chipping the bone of that foot and needed a plaster cast for a month followed by another boot for some time after that. At the time of those two injuries, I was a relatively skinny gal (5’4″ around 100-115 lbs). However, in the years that have gone by I have gained a substantial amount of weight, and I want to start exercising to lose this weight. My concern is that I might be prone to ankle sprains, especially since they sometimes give out on me when I am walking normally. I am worried that a combination of what I perceive to be “weak” ankles and the extra weight I’ve put on that my ankles now have to support is a little bit dangerous. I am wondering that if before I start “really” exercising (jumping around and such), should I invest in a pair of ankle braces, and if so, what kind would be best for me? Thanks for any advice!

    • ANSWER:
      What you should do to lose the weight is swim. Swimming puts no pressure on your joints or ankles and allows you to exercise.

      The basic kick in swimming is a flutter kick where you keep your ankles relaxed. If you have any concerns then you can buy an Ace brand neoprene ankle brace over the counter. I have to use them for an tendon tear – they work well and don’t come off. Cheaper things like tape don’t last. I’ve never tried to wear them with shoes but those do offer the most support.

      In addition to exercising you can modify your diet as much as possible to get your weight down to wear you wont need to worry as much about ankle injuries. You can also strengthen your ankles using resistance bands and special exercises and/or yoga.

  28. QUESTION:
    Should i continue to wear ankle braces? (High caliber volleyball players only please)?
    Here is the deal. I play volleyball for the university of regina in Canada. Next year will be my first year as a starting setter. I will be in my second year.
    2 years ago i sprained my ankle and tore some ligaments. I wore active ankles for 1 and a half year then i switched to the ASO brace for more movement. My ankles arent near what i want them to be streght wise yet. I will be training them all summer as well as playing beach. In the fall should i switch to no braces or stick with the ASO? Keeping in mind that a injury to my ankle will put a huge damper on my teammates as well as parts of the community.
    thanks 4 telling me what i already know. you obviously do NOT play vball at a high level

    • ANSWER:
      In my honest opinion I think ankle Braces are STUPID. We are required to wear them. Active ankles and others with the harder inserts are REALLY bad for your knee. You become dependent on them and do not activate the muscles around your knees… and that’s just a bad mess waiting to happen.

      at the same time volleyball is a sport with lots of lateral movements and it is very easy to hurt your ankles. you do need some sort of support. I suggest wearing a lace up and velcro type of ankle brace. it provides support, but you don’t grow too dependent on them. Make sure to baby your ankle and do lots of training including balance and flexibility to prevent or lessen the extent of more injuries.

  32. QUESTION:
    Which brace is better?
    Is the ASO or active ankle brace better for a volleyball player. I am a setter and I play at the post secondary level.

    • ANSWER:
      I use active ankle because I find it more comfortable for me. Since we are setters, we would need to jump set a lot and active ankle allows me to jump straight up because it doesn’t allow you to move your ankle left or right, only up and down.

  33. QUESTION:
    Ankle Braces for Volleyball?
    I have bad right ankle problems. I use an Active Ankle while playing volleyball and other sports. I have used an ASO during the day, but I find they do not offer enough support. On the internet I have read that people have problems with Active Ankles. I find them comfortable and useful. What do you think? What kind of brace do you suggest?

    • ANSWER:
      I have used Active Ankles for a long time, and I think they are great! They offer support and you can tighten them accordingly. The only thing a bit annoying is that when you first get them, they squeak. You can easily fix this, though, with tape or it will eventually go away! I definitely recommend Active Ankles! :)

  34. QUESTION:
    I don’t know what happened.?
    I’ve worn an ankle brace for a few months for my right foot, which is still not completely stable. However, today at school, I think I rolled my left foot, which had been perfectly fine, when I was driving to the basket. No one touched me.. It was kind of weird, and I just fell awkwardly, with no pain. Then, when I got up, I felt like I was limping. Sometimes, when I walk, there is a little pain. Right now, I am wearing an ASO brace on my left foot, I have been wearing it since I got the sprain. What should I do? Is this just a rolled ankle that I should try to rest? I’m really not sure what to do at the moment.

    • ANSWER:
      it may be an injury related to the fact that your other ankle was already hurt. sometimes when you have an injury, your body overcompensates and can cause an injury to another part of your body. you might want to see a doc.

  35. QUESTION:
    I have ligament damage, and would like to know what type of workout I can do?
    I was going to start with a personal trainer next week, but went to the Dr. to get the OK first. I found out I have ligament damage in my right ankle, and am now in a ASO brace for at least the next 2 to 3 months.

    Any suggestions on what I can do? I don’t want to pay for the gym membership if I’m not going to be able to use it. I’ve got a tread mill, stationary bike, yoga ball, yoga mat, and sit up/crunch roller at home.

    Thanks in advance.

  38. QUESTION:
    Sports Injury Question: Is Pre wrap strong enough to stabilize my ankle or should I go with tape?
    …or should I go with Andover Powerflex Sports Tape (sorry for the name brand) to increase my ankle’s stability and comfort. Right now I alternate between taping with 2″ micropore surgical tape and a lace-up/figure 8 strapped ASO Ankle Brace to keep my junk in place while cycling and working.

    I had a bad sprain in February and it seems there is some ligament or tendon damage that continues to persist. :-) Oh, and no, I haven’t the money to get a scan of my ankle due to a lack of medical coverage. :-)

    • ANSWER:
      Look you really need an x-ray it could be a small fracture. Please try asking friends, parents, etc for the money. Give it as much support as possible, put it up, experiment with ice/heat (not for too long though), etc

    http://www.champssports.com/catalog/productdetail/model_nbr–140695/sku–264085/cm–GLOBAL%20SEARCH%3A%20KEYWORD%20SEARCH/

    can i wear this while im playing basketball?

    • ANSWER:
      yes, you should be able to wear this in any league/setting. I have kids on my team who wear them too. The only piece of advice I have is if you are planning on getting the white brace, wear white socks. If you get a black one or any other color, match it with the socks you wear. Refs can be hard on you for not matching.

      Hope your ankle gets better!
