We have found, after many years of helping thousands of people heal their sprained ankles fully and quickly, that ankle braces are not helpful and may actually cause more harm than good. Here’s why people end up using them in the first place…

If your ankles heal badly, because you’re relying on rest and ice and hoping your ankles will magically heal on their own, they will end up weak and unstable. At that point, you will most likely use ankle braces to protect your ankles from another injury. But, there’s a steep price you may pay for that protection.

Here are the top 3 reasons NOT to use ankle braces after a sprained ankle. (And just for reference, anytime we mention ankle braces, you can include ankle wraps and tape too. They all basically do the same thing…)

The #1 Reason NOT to use Ankle Braces
They weaken your ankles

Ankle braces are like a crutch… They wrap your ankle and make it hard to move. Yes, it can support weak ankles and lower the risk of injury, BUT your ankle will NOT have natural mobility. And that means it will never regain its natural strength and stability before your injury.

So, that means you will have to continue wearing ankle braces forever (and most people do!)… Even worse, your ankles will continue to weaken over time, ensuring you can never play sports without them. In fact, most people’s ankles get so weak with ankle braces, that anytime they are not wearing them (even without playing sports), they are at a high risk of an ankle injury, especially if they are walking on natural, uneven ground (grass, sand, etc…).

Instead of going down this path, we have found it MUCH more beneficial to naturally rehabilitate your ankles after an injury. With a great ankle rehab program, you can get your ankles 100% back to their original strength, stability and healthy range of motion. In fact, most people find their ankles get even stronger than pre-injury. And that means your ankles will be more protected naturally without the need for ankle braces. More importantly, it means your ankles will move naturally and safely, like they were meant to.

The #2 Reason NOT to use Ankle Braces
You’ll be slower and lose balance

If your ankles heal poorly, because you did not use a good ankle rehab program, you will find yourself with weak and unstable ankles. They may even still be painful and sore anytime you play sports, go for a run, etc… So, you’ll turn to ankle braces, wraps, or tape to help give you some more support and protection.

But, that support INHIBITS natural movement of the ankle. So, not only will your ankles get weaker over time, they will also lose their natural power, strength and stability, which will make you unable to move in the same way. That means, you will lose natural balance, speed, agility, jumping ability, etc.

As time goes on, it will only get worse. All those little muscles in your ankles will atrophy and lose their natural ability to generate power and keep you balanced. You will probably notice a dramatic loss of speed and balance in sports and everyday activities. And until you rehabilitate your ankles fully, it will never come back.

Alternatively, if you rehabilitate your ankle back to full health, you may even notice an improvement in balance and speed, since your ankle could very well be stronger and more stable than pre-injury.

The #3 Reason NOT to use Ankle Braces
They can hurt your knees, hips and low back

This is super important and NOT something most people understand…

Your ankles are a mobile joint. You can wiggle them all around and they move in all ranges of motion. That makes sense, since your feet come into contact with the ground and your ankles need to move a lot to adjust for different types of surfaces safely.

But, the next joint in your body is the knee and that is NOT a mobile joint. The knees are a STABLE joint. Your knee can only move a few degrees safely. If you force it beyond that, those ligaments (ACL, MCL, etc) can tear. And that is a much more serious injury than an ankle sprain.

So, if you take a mobile joint (the ankle) and you make it IMMOBILE with an ankle brace, when you go to move, your body may be forced to find that range of motion in the next joint up the kinetic chain (the knee). And that means, you put yourself at a MUCH higher risk for a serious knee injury when you wear ankle braces. Read more about knee pain and ankle braces >>

Plus, since ankle braces can put a lot of strain and stress on the knees, we find that many people get tremendous relief in their knees once they fully regain their natural range of motion in the ankles and stop wearing the braces.

In addition, since you are messing around with the way the body naturally moves once you put on an ankle brace, you may also get into trouble with your hips and low back. Again, the hips are mobile and the low back (core) is stable. But, once, you start messing around with the natural mobility of the ankle, things can get messy in the joints above it. If you lose natural mobility in the ankles, you also increase your risk of injury to your hips and low back.

Again, it is just SOOO much better to naturally heal your ankles with rehab, so they can move naturally and safely. Rehab makes your ankles strong and stable, lowers your risk of future sprains, improves speed and balance and helps protect your knees, hips and low back.

It is worth the small investment and amount of time it takes to heal properly vs. relying on unnatural equipment that makes you weak and throws your whole body out of whack.

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…

That’s why we have a very simple, no hassle, 30 day money back guarantee, so it’s completely risk-free to give it a try right now.

I created this program, because 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!!

Just got your videos for the holistic rehab the other day. It has already helped and I am so grateful as I know Drs want to cut you open and ask questions later. My left ankle is very badly sprained, completely black and purple and swollen half way up my calf. I am an athlete and have zero intentions of being cut on now or in the future! It was a major eversion off a curb and I just want it to get back to normal. Thanks so much for putting this HEM ankle rehab together, it's a godsend! Have a beautiful day.

very beneficial

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
