The compression and stabilization this lightweight ankle sleeve provides make it perfect for a ton of different ankle and foot injuries. You can use the sleeve for a few days or weeks to treat an ankle sprain. Or you can wear it around-the-clock to keep chronic pain and swelling from an old injury or arthritis at bay.
Just a few of its more common uses include:
It is also a great orthotic for a bit of extra support to the ankle as you transition out of a walking boot or cast.
You can also wear it underneath a more rigid ankle brace to help with swelling. Plus it keeps the orthotic from irritating your skin.
The compression stocking is made of a knitted elastic material that is about as thick as a sock. The three-dimensional knit is breathable and durable, which helps it to hold up well to long-term use.
The soft ankle support compresses the ankle and foot, which boosts blood flow to whisk away inflammation and speed along healing.
And its two squishy silicone inserts massage the area around the bony knobs on either side of the ankle. Your own movement stimulates this massage action that soothes ankle pain.
The placement of these inserts is especially great for treating Achilles tendonitis since they massage either side of the tendon. (Heel cups can also work wonders for Achilles tendon pain.
These contoured inserts are sewn into the sleeve, so you do not have to worry about them shifting around or getting detached.
The sleeve for ankle sprains has a thicker band of stitching on both of its ends that help it stay put, even if you’re out for a run. And you do not have to worry about the soft ankle support stretching out.
This elastic ankle sleeve does contain latex, so if you have allergies to the material you should consider another product, such as this neoprene ankle wrap.
The sleeve for sprains comes in six different sizes that fit ankle circumferences ranging up to 11 3/8 inch. The ankle support is seven inches long and it leaves the toe area open.
It should be worn directly against the skin and it easily fits inside a shoe. If you want, you can also wear it underneath a sock.
Putting it on is as easy as sliding your foot into the compression sleeve and positioning it so the silicone inserts hug either side of the Achilles tendon area. The product’s tag should be at the top.
Ankle injuries are fairly common complaints among people of all ages and activity levels. A bad turn, a missed step, pregnancy, a long day on the feet or even just the passage of time can lead to pain and swelling of the joint. And if left untreated, short-term problems can turn into long-term (chronic) discomfort.
This sleeve for the ankle is a simple solution for such aches and pains. Many users notice immediate pain relief after putting it on.
How does it work? Well, the knitted elastic material it’s made of compresses the ankle and foot, which boosts blood flow.
This helps swelling, which is often the source of pain, to go down more quickly. Plus the boost in blood and oxygen to the region speeds along healing.
The silicone inserts at the back of the ankle do the same but in a more targeted way. They zero in on the area around the bony knobs of the ankle that can be tough to compress.
The great thing is this takes no effort on your part outside of wearing the soft ankle brace.
Since swelling is the body’s response to injury, this means the support can help at some stage of treatment for just about every ankle or foot problem.
