Ligament injuries through twisting are among the most frequent injuries of all in football. A typical case is the rupture of the lateral ligament of the upper ankle, a so-called “supination injury”, i.e. an injury resulting from a twist to the inside.
Usually, these kinds of ligament ruptures are treated conservatively and require some good rest for the joint, “the patient should treat his foot with a lot of care for at least six weeks by bending and stretching it for a maximum of 20 degrees”. (Source: Dr Nicolas Gumpert, medical website: )
No matter how fast you are able to recover, a mandatory break is unavoidable which makes it hard to get back to the level of your injury-free teammates.
Hence, it’s best to not let it happen at all. Besides a well-trained musculature and regular stretching of the ligaments, the equipment plays a crucial role in that. Avoid using cleats, especially on dry and hard soil. Add a high-quality ankle support for football such as the Bauerfeind Sports Ankle Support and the risk for injury decreases significantly.
