Ankle braces increase sprains. Yes, I said it. Here comes another bold statement… in most cases, ankle braces are terrible for your ankles and the rest of your body, especially your knees. In other words, ankle braces can lead to more sprained ankles and other, more serious injuries too. Let’s talk about why… But, first, check out the short video on ankle braces above.

Let’s say you do NOT use HEM. That means you are probably resting, icing and waiting for your ankle to heal. Well, after a few months, you may end up wanting a brace, because your ankle is still weak and unstable.

Now, if you play sports, you are going to really notice the difference before and after the injury and you are going to be afraid of hurting that ankle again. that’s why we so many athletes wearing braces and getting their ankles taped.

And you do this, because you think your are protecting yourself from another sprain. That makes sense theoretically, but unfortunately, things play out in a very different way.

Even though your ankles are weak and slow, once you put on the brace, your ankle will barely be able to move. That’s going to make you even slower, but far worse, your ankle will only get weaker, because the muscles atrophy over time if they are not used properly.

And the weaker and more unstable your ankle gets, the higher the risk of a sprain, even with an ankle brace. Yes, even with an ankle brace. Ankle sprains can still happen even with a brace, tape or wraps. And, as soon as you take that ankle brace off, your ankles will really be at an increased risk for a sprain. And it just keeps getting worse over time.

Now, here’s the really bad news. Since your ankle cannot move, when you play sports and you change direction, the ankle won’t be able to help very much. So, your body is going to force the knee to move. That’s bad. That’s really bad. Your ACL and/or MCL can easily tear if it moves more than a few degrees. That’s because the knee is a stable joint and isn’t supposed to move.

Remember, your ankle is mobile and an ankle brace makes it immobile. This makes the knees mobile. So, ankle braces make your ankles weaker. They make you slower. They provide minimal protection against sprains at great cost. The list goes on and on… And all of this, because you didn’t simply heal your ankle correctly in the first place? Doesn’t make much sense. Read more about knee pain and ankle braces >>

The good news is that even if you have an old injury and weak ankles, you can still throw away those braces. Start doing ankle rehab right now and in a short time, your ankles will feel strong and stable and you won’t need braces anymore. The best part? You’ll be faster and your knees will be protected, etc… In fact, your ankles will be much more protected as well. That means a LOWER risk of sprains without ankle braces.

In the meantime, check out the short video I made above which discusses all this even further. But, the bottom line is that you should strengthen the ankles and let them work properly without braces, so that your body moves naturally. This is your best defense against sprains and is well worth the minimal effort required to get it done.

If you want to heal your ankle fully & fast…

And get back to doing what you love PAIN-FREE, without the fear of re-injury

This will be the most important thing you ever do for yourself.

Here’s why:

My name is Scott Malin and fifteen years ago, I had to give up what I love… playing basketball. It literally crushed me to give it up!!

But, I had sprained my ankles so many times that I could no longer play.

Every time it happened, I used R.I.C.E. (rest, ice elevation, compression), but my ankles took months to heal and just kept getting weaker and more painful.

I tried everything, including ankle braces, but they made my ankles even weaker and then my knees started hurting too!

When I sprained my ankle one last time and had to crawl off the court, I knew I was done.

That night, I sat in my apartment and cried.

I was in my early thirties and thought I had to give up what I loved for the rest of my life.

But, I had no other option…

My ankles were just way too weak, stiff and unstable and painkillers/ice did nothing anymore.

As I lay in bed, staring up at the ceiling, I remembered back to when I trained with a clinician for the National Academy of Sports Medicine and Soft Tissue Therapist for the Los Angeles Clippers.

I also thought about a revolutionary Naturopath that taught me so much about healing the body naturally.

Then, I came up with a crazy idea…

It instantly improved how my ankle felt.

And the more I did it, the better my ankle got.

By day 6, my ankle was 100% pain-free and felt stronger and more stable than BEFORE I got injured.

The best part… I PLAYED BASKETBALL AGAIN, BUT THERE WAS NO PAIN!!

Afterward, I cried again, but they were tears of joy!!

When I told them what I did, my basketball buddies laughed and said I was crazy.

They called me a “dreamer”.

But, I didn’t care.

Because I had nothing to lose and everything to gain.

I threw my ankle braces away.

After months of late nights, early mornings, and lots of trial and error…

I created a complete, at-home healing system with incredibly reliable results:

  • Heals new ankle injuries including ANY type and grade of ankle sprain.
  • Heals old ankle injuries that never fully healed.
  • Heals weak and unstable ankles.
  • Even heals most Achilles, calf and foot injuries!

Since I was a fitness trainer, I was able to help all my clients (celebrities and athletes) whenever they got injured (which happened a lot!).

I was even on the news a few times!!!

The response from my clients was so overwhelming that a few of them eventually convinced me to make it available to everyone.

And even though it is incredibly complete, I always wanted to keep it SUPER simple and easy to do.

So, just follow along with me on any device and that’s it!

You get instant access to all the videos, which are short and focused on quickly giving you the information you need.

I will show you the absolute BEST rehab techniques, exercises, stretches, activations, holistic techniques, prehab techniques, etc….

These are techniques you will NOT find online anywhere else.

You will learn the perfect form for everything to get the best possible results.

It has taken many years of incredibly hard and dedicated work, but I am so humbled that over 100,000 people have healed themselves fully and fast with my program.

If you don’t believe me, please, check out all the reviews, including video testimonials, before and after pictures, etc. from people of all ages.

And listen, I know you’re probably still skeptical. That’s totally fair…

So, just PAY WHATEVER YOU WANT FOR FULL ACCESS!!

My goal is to help as many people as possible, so just pay whatever you can afford to get full access for life.

I don’t want others to go through all the pain and misery that I did!!

I don’t want anyone else to give up what they love…

Life is too short!!!

And now, there’s an easy way you can heal yourself and get back to your life.

I wish you all the best and thank you!!

Hello Mr. Malin,

I want to thank you for this website. In the end of november, I sprained my ankle and my doctor said that there is an avulsion fracture in my ankle(ATFL). I had really hard times after this incident. When I was looking for how to heal fast, I saw your website. I tried to do as much as different exercises that you showed. Now I face some difficulties during my daily life due to my foot but swelling is decreasing everyday thanks to exercises. Especially, the video about how to activate ankle is very beneficial for me.

Thanks for your support both mentally and physically.

Sincerely,
Orhun Oktar, Electrical and Electronics Engineer

Your program is great. I actually broke one ankle and sprained the other. I just got the cast off and will begin rehab on that ankle now.

Thank you for helping me recover quickly

I'm emailing you as a way of saying thanks for the great help your program has given me. I re-sprained my ankle while playing badminton on Monday and thanks to your program, I'm on track to train again this Saturday. Just 5 days to get back on track for this season's tournaments! My ROM is even better than it was pre-injury. Again, many thanks.
