Stay Strong this Tennis Season
May 17, 2019

Over the course of a tennis match, players will sprint, stop suddenly, twist to volley the ball, and jump to swing a ball over the net. This places an incredible amount of stress on the ankles and leaves them prone to common tennis ankle injuries if not properly protected. Fortunately, tennis players can play confidently and safely all season wrong with the right ankle support.

Best Ankle Support for Ankle Sprains

One wrong step on the court, and tennis players can easily suffer from an ankle sprain. Often followed by pain, swelling, bruising, stiffness in the joint, and/or difficulty walking, ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries in tennis.

Luckily, tennis players can keep this painful injury at bay by wearing the Bauerfeind Sports Ankle Support during practices and matches. The comfortable and anatomically-fitting Sports Ankle Support reduces swelling, improves circulation, provides added stability, and stimulates muscle regeneration in the ankle. The durable taping strap allows users to adjust the support to find their best fit for ultimate comfort, support, and confidence all season long.

Best Support for Foot Pain

Foot pain is also no stranger to tennis players, especially if players already suffer from flat foot, arch pain, Splayfoot, weak arches, and arch fatigue. These common foot injuries and issues can be further amplified by the demanding moves of tennis and shorten a player’s season if they are not tended to.

The Bauerfeind Sports Insole Ball and Racket support provides relief for all of these conditions by providing stability for quick stops and turns, making them an ideal addition to your tennis outfit. The flexible orthotic core supports the foot and provides maximum mobility for a strong performance during each practice and match.
