Bracing to Avoid Injury In Girls Volleyball
Your high school daughter may already know that bracing her ankles can help prevent injury during volleyball games. Now new research suggests the type of brace may be as important as the bracing itself.
Why do young women in particular need ankle support? In recent years studies have confirmed that the lateral ankle ligaments in females normally are more lax than in males. In addition, though teen ligaments tend to be stronger than adult ligaments, young people more frequently engage in sports, such as volleyball, that create awkward landings and lead to unusual ankle stress.
The question of whether to tape, brace or go without support during volleyball practices and games generates a variety of opinions. A review of online volleyball forums reveals that some experts who work directly with players feel a young woman who has not previously sprained an ankle should continue to play unbraced. Others agree, adding that once an injury has happened, the young woman should brace going forward, once the injury has healed. Still others call for bracing in all circumstances, and some feel that taping is more effective than bracing.
To complicate the picture, some young players fear that bracing will weaken their ankles, though there's some research that suggests this fear is unfounded.
Now a new study supports the use of rigid braces for young women, particularly for those who have not already sprained an ankle. The key here is the type of brace found to best prevent injury. A previous study looked at bracing in general for young women playing volleyball and determined that braces are key to avoiding inversion sprains.
The latest study, published in the April edition of the journal of the American Orthopaedic Foot amp; Ankle Society (AOFAS), looked specifically at the use of rigid, semi-rigid and non-rigid ankle braces worn in volleyball practices and games. Results showed that the best support for female ankles was a more rigid brace, as opposed to the non-rigid type of support. The study's author, Dr. Carol Frey, said in an AOFAS press release that "prophylactic ankle brace use is recommended for female volleyball players, especially those who have not had a previous sprain."
But study or no, the choice to wear braces will still come down to what your daughter's coach requires and/or how your daughter herself feels about having the added support. At the very least, if your daughter has chronically unstable ankles or a history of multiple sprains, she should consult with a doctor about the effectiveness of bracing at all times on the court, and what type of brace might be best for her.
If your daughter does sprain an ankle in a volleyball game or practice, remember the AOFAS guidelines for minor injury: R.I.C.E. Rest the ankle by keeping weight off of it; ice to keep swelling down; compress with bandages to add support, taking care not to wrap too tightly; and elevate the ankle above heart level for 48 hours.
For more serious sprains, the R.I.C.E. guidelines come into play but a doctor may also want to immobilize the ankle. Consult with your daughter's coach and doctor if you're uncertain about how to care for your daughter's ankle sprain.
