If you are one of the many who are suffering from plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and heel pain then you need to do something for your feet before it gets worse. People don’t realize how severe these problems can be until they escalate to a point from where there is no return. The foot is one of the body parts that suffer the most. Regardless whether it is a chronic pain or an immediate injury the pain is unbearable. The only thing you can do is be extremely carefully how you move and make sure you always do warm up exercise before you go running. This will probably decrease the possibility of getting hurt, but you still won’t be in the safe zone.
Professional athletes have a secret. Their legs mean the world to them so they take good care of them. If you turn on the TV and watch some athletes prepare for the marathon you will notice something on their feet that looks like a sock. This is in fact an ankle support that stabilises the foot and prevents any unexpected or sudden movements of the leg. At the same time the support allows you to move the foot without any problems but it significantly decreases the possibility of getting hurt.
Aircast AirHeel Ankle Support Brace is made of neoprene which is a very good material that allows your skin to breathe. However, people who have gentle skin which is easily irritated can react to the new accessory. In case you see that your skin is not accepting the support try to put on a lotion and wear the support only when you move. These are very rare cases, but it might happen.
The ankle support brace is equipped with two interconnected aircells. One of them is placed under the food and the other is places in the back of the Achilles tendon. These areas bear the greatest pressure and are the most common places where an injury might occur. The Aircell technology has a pulsating pneumatic compression which increases the blood flow in your ankle and at the same time helps you reduce any swelling you might have as a consequence of the injury you have suffered.
You can choose to wear the support either when you get hurt, or wear it all the time to prevent getting hurt. It is all up to you. The brace itself is universal so it can be worn both on your left or right foot. The endurance of the aircells has been tested and they can withstand the pressure from even more active movements like running, jumping and even landing. The brace itself comes inflated, so there is no need to use a pump. Putting it on is very fast and easy, as all you have to do is act as if you were putting on a sock. Then you can adjust the strap to fit your leg and that is all. It is a universal fit so regardless of the size and width of your ankle the brace would fit perfectly.
