Regular price £24.99 Sale

Mueller's XLP ankle brace is an elite standard functional support that provides extra support to weakened and injured ankles affording improved stability and helping to prevent re-sprain. It provides lateral and medial support with a lace up design allows good forward and backward range of movement whilst protecting against inversion (inward) and eversion (outward) stresses to the ankle.

Who Should Use This?

The XLP ankle brace can be used from adolescence into middle age to support the ankle joint and its ligaments. It is a very good sports / heavy use brace suitable for most sports including contact sport. Initially designed for football, its unique design makes this brace highly suitable for most sporting pursuits including hockey, rugby, cricket, tennis, squash etc.

This is a functional brace designed to use as the injured athlete returns to weight bearing rehabilitation and running or training drills and for return to play. It provides anatomical support following injury to the ankle's lateral ligaments (outside of the ankle), medial (or deltoid ligament - inside of the ankle) and capsular ligaments (around the ankle). It is not suitable for tendonopathy or injury of the achilles tendon but can be used to support inflamed or injured tibialis posterior tendons.

How Does it Work?

Chartered physiotherapists routinely tape injured ankles to protect them running supportive bands of tape along and over the line of the injured ligaments to shorten and protect them. This clever brace allows the ankle to retain a functional range whilst supporting these collateral ligaments.

Sizing and Technical Information:

Physio Warehouse's therapists advise this brace is one of the best functional braces of its type that they have found on the market, however no brace is as good as tape applied immediately before play by a trained therapist. This type of brace though is the next best thing - with the advantage of repeatable, quick and easy self application. This brace is not suitable for acutely swollen and injured ankles for which we advise the our Pneumatic Ankle Splint
