Foot and Ankle Braces - Supports
Ankles Braces and Supports
Anyone who has ever played any sport will tell you the importance of a good brace or support for your ankles and feet. While running, playing a game, or sometimes just walking period, it is very possible to accidentally sprain a ligament in your ankle or foot. When this occurs, trying to put weight on the affected area can cause you to be unstable, loose footing altogether, or cause great pain. To relieve this type of pain and provide support, an ankle brace can be used to prevent further injury and aid in rehabilation.
Types of Braces
In today"s world of high tech wizardry, there are a hundreds of different kinds of braces and manufacturers. At Active Forever, we sort through them all and provide you with only the most exceptional products available.
Bauerfeind offers a few different styles of ankle supports tailored to your specific needs. For example, their AchilloTrain line specifically aids with injuries to the Achilles Tendon, while their MalleoTrain products targets the sore ankle itself with dual contoured padding for the inner and outer malleolous. They also have an AirLoc product which provides superior, titanium plated, protection while still giving the comfort of air cushioning.

Aircast products focus on providing great protection and support while still giving you the comfort of overlapping aircells that produce graduated compression while you move. This compression effect increases circulation thus reducing swelling, increasing oxygen in the muscles, and reducing the presence of lactic acid
Sprained Ankle Treatment
While use of an ankle brace can prevent further injury and provide support during rehabilitation, there are also treatments out there to help relieve pain and speed recovery of a sore ankle. Personally, if I am suffering from any sort of joint, ligament or muscle pain, the first place I turn is to Hot and Cold Therapy. While heat therapy dilates blood vessels, increases circulation and alters pain sensation, cold therapy constricts blood vessels, reducing swelling and numbing pain. Alternating heat and cold therapies packs a one, two punch against pain and helps to get you back on your feet.
Another popular form of treating minor aches and pains in your feet and ankles is with the use of magnets. Magnetic Therapy utilizes high power magnets to improve circulation, reduce swelling and speed up recovery time. Therion Ankle combines magnetic therapy and ankle supports to make high quality, pain relieving devices that you can rely on for years to come!
Lastly, Massage Therapy remedies pain, reduces stress, and has been proven over thousands of years of trial and error. Specifically for injuries to the ankle or for just tired, achy feet in general, products like the Homedics Hydro-Therapy Foot Massager combing massage, hydrotherapy and soothing blue LED lighting to significantly reduce pain, swelling and stress all at once!
