About ankle injuries:
Ankle complaints can be a serious hindrance for athletes practising their sports. In particular the ankle ligaments are subject to considerable stress. In the case of slight twisting, the ankle ligaments briefly suffer overstretching, but walking can be resumed soon. If the twisting is more serious, the ankle ligament may be completely torn. The ankle then swells quickly and becomes painful. This is called ankle sprain or distortion. Ankle complaints may be long-lived, because the ankle continues to be stressed. The use of a brace, combined with remedial therapy, may provide an effective solution.
The PSB ankle brace 8 can be used in the following cases:
After minor twisting
Ankle support after previous twisting
Serious spraining and major instability usually require a stronger brace. Make sure you obtain expert advice! Otherwise, there are no known disorders where the PSB ankle brace cannot or should not be worn. Avoid wearing the brace too tight! Pain is, however, always a sign of warning. If pain or complaints persist without a clear cause, it is recommended that you visit your GP, physiotherapist or sports physician.

An abdominal strain occurs when the rectus abdominus is torn or ruptured. The abdominal muscles allow movement, assist with breathing, and provide support to the spine. They consist of the internal and external obliques, rectus abdominus, and the transversus abdominus. The transversus abdominus muscle is triangular and flat, and the rectus abdominus is long and flat. If the abdominal muscles become weak or tight, they can cause poor posture and back pain.
There are three types of abdominal muscle strain; grade 1, grade 2 and grade 3.
A grade 1 strain occurs when a few muscle fibres are torn;
a grade 2 strain occurs when the tears to the muscle fibres are more extensive;
and a grade 3 strain occurs when there is a complete rupture of the muscle
Any sport which involves a fast movement or sudden change in direction can cause abdominal muscle strain. Gymnasts, weight lifters, rowers, throwers are particularly susceptible to abdominal strain.
