You have probably heard of a bandage. Maybe one of your sports friends wears one. But do you know what a support is good for? In this article, we explain in detail when and why you are better off with a support.

As a regular athlete, we don't have to tell you how important it is to take good care of your body. After all, an hour of running or cycling puts a lot of strain on your muscles. Your joints also suffer, especially when you exert yourself. When you play tennis or football, your ankles are put under a lot of strain. The consequences are well known. Every year, thousands and thousands of athletes are injured in this way.

A bandage provides additional stability in the joint

If you have torn or sprained your ankle ligaments, the risk of re-injury is quite high. This is because the affected tissue remains a sensitive area. As a result, the ankle becomes permanently unstable. It is precisely in these cases that a bandage is a useful aid. It provides additional support to the ankle to allow it to heal properly and reduce the risk of re-injury. In addition, a bandage helps to prevent unwanted movements. And: The fabric on the skin has a massage effect and stimulates the metabolism.

Additional advantages of a bandage:

  • easy to put on
  • Washable
  • Soft feeling on the skin

Support stockings have a healing effect

Compression stockings are useful for all kinds of problems such as varicose veins, thrombosis, lymphoedema, phlebitis or after certain surgical procedures. These compression stockings therefore have a medical or therapeutic effect. Their purpose is not to prevent a symptom, but to eliminate it. Support stockings are usually thicker than sports compression stockings and are made in a different way. Therefore, they are also more expensive than sports compression stockings. In certain cases, they are also reimbursed by health insurance companies.
