Will A Walking Brace Weaken My Ankle When It's Sprained?

Postby Bac » Tue Oct 03, 2017 11:57 am

I've had my walking brace for about 3 weeks now, almost four. My doctor said I think 3-4 weeks, (or 4-6, I don't remember) and my dad says he wants me to take my brace off. He claims it is going to weaken my ankle if I wear it too much, but I want my two stretched ligaments to heal properly.

I already take it off when I'm at home and only use it when I'm going to school (huge campus, tons of walking!) but my ankle keeps randomly throbbing and I don't feel ready.


I'm not sure what I can do to convince him, or if its time to take it off. I have P.E. and stuff tomorrow, and I don't know if I'm ready to play flag football and stuff yet.

Thanks in advance for any help.

know a walking brace will not weak your ankle if it did then the doctor would not of put you in one if your ankle is giving you pain and problems then you r not ready for pe or flag football the best thing to do is to explain this to your dad or get the doctor or your coach if you have one
