Tell your daughter to wear the braces. They help. They don't hurt. Every high level player gets ankle protection, either taping or braces or both.
Olympics, college, many clubs. Front and back row.
I've heard talk of knee stress and ankle weakness. After following this for 8 years now, the girls who wear braces are healthier than those who
don't. My daughters both had to sprain their ankles a couple times before they started wearing the braces, after the braces, no more sprained ankles.
It shouldn't be a debate in my opinion based on all the articles and the fact that the teams coached by professional coaches with professional trainers
wear them- because they work.
Whether or not it's a good thing, far from every high level player wears them. Please don't state false facts...unless you're running
And debate is good, if everyone just accepted things because that's how the top does it, or that's how the majority does it, there will be no
innovation. The Fosbury Flop would have never been invented, football helmets would be less effective, and many harmful training techniques/skills would still
be in practice.
