As an active teenager, Andrew Mirabella had his fair share of painful ankle sprains playing soccer and other various sports.It wasn’t until he was midway through his advanced physiology studies as part of his Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy that he started thinking about the mechanism of ankle injuries, how they happen and what could be done to treat them more effectively.
“Basically, ankle sprains are being treated the same today as they have been for decades-rest, ice, compression, and elevation and sometimes athletic tape to immobilize the joint. It really doesn’t do anything to treat high or low ankle sprains-which are the most common injuries in the entire body”
With that in mind, Andrew went back to the drawing board. It didn’t take him long to realize the mechanism of treatment was flawed-and took an existing treatment in the realm of Physical Therapy and applied it within a patented product.
Within a year, Brace2Play went from a concept to a reality. It remains the ONLY above-the-ankle brace ideally suited to prevent, treat, and heal ankle sprains, related injuries, and pain faster using a researched treatment technique!
