Who hasn't ever sprained while running? If you have a Compex it will help you in your recovery so that you return to 100% as soon as possible.

In sports where there are many changes of direction at high intensity or long runs on uneven terrain, joint injuries are the most common

Among them and being the one that has more incidence we find the ankle sprain which we will explain how to work your prevention with the help of our Compex.

First of all we must understand what is proprioception? 

It is a system that our body has to perceive where each part of the body is at each moment.

A good proprioception stabilizes, coordinates y Strengthens body structures, allowing to stabilize, in this case the ankle, preventing injuries. In case of falling into a sprain it means that the joint has gone out of its range of work and that we have been injured.

Let's see how we can work proprioception to prevent the joint from leaving its range of work and thus prevent us from suffering a sprained ankle.
