Why are ankle braces recommended for injured ankles?

Ankle Braces and Support

For injuries, practice, and play, the best ankle braces and support must hold the ankle firmly and protect it from injury. The Active Ankle Brace allows for great motion but will not allow lateral twisting. It's recommended especially for injured ankles. You should give your ankle time to heal, but if you can't miss that big game then you want to make sure you are looking for a brace that caters to injury and not just a warmth or support brace.
