    Great information thanks, I am an avid runner myself, most of my running tends to be offroad on uneven ground and I was wondering if there was anything you would recommend for ankle support? Would the knee braces work for helping provide better stability to each leg and therefore giving more stability to the ankles?

      Hi, Vaughn and thank you.

      Offroad can be a very good method to strengthen your ankles. But at the same time is a little bit of danger because you aren´t running on flat roads.
      Everything is good in a mix but running offroad is something that should be part of all runners. 

      If not needed I would not use a brace or sleeves for your ankles. They will better if they will get this challenges. I would prefer to focus on running in good shoes for off roads running.

      But if needed, here is a good article about when to use ankle brace and too there are very good recommended ankle braces. https://sportssend.com/when-to

    So, I’m almost 40, and planning to run my first marathon in March, 2019. I used to be a runner, but it’s been about 2 years since I ran on a regular basis. I’ve never had knee problems before, but this time around both of my knees have started hurting on the front side of the tibia, just below and toward the midline of the patella. My doctor gave me some strengthening exercises, but I’m wondering if adding a brace until my legs and hips are stronger is a good idea so I can keep running while I do some targeted strengthening.

      Hi, Amanda and thank you.

      It is a great goal, and I really hope you get your goal!

      About your question. In many cases, the brace helps. It is best if it is for a limited time but some need to use it for a long time, other not.

      But having said that, I stress that you ask your doctor before you buy it! The reason is that we are all different and in many or most cases the injury is that too. So small details can change things if it is wise or not.

      Because I want what is best for you and when we talk about injuries we need to be careful. Not at least when you have such a great goal in mind.

      Good luck!

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.
