Achilles tendonitis can cause disruption to your day-to-day activities as the pain can often become unbearable. At Vero Ankle™, we have a specially designed Achilles tendonitis brace that helps you reduce the swelling of the area through compression and speeds up the recovery process. Our Achilles tendon support brace reduces the stress placed on the tendon by offering a combination of heel lifts and compression.
Our ankle wrap for Achilles pain improves your mobility by reducing the pain and providing enough support to your heel and tendon region. Moreover, the velcro straps on our ankle brace for Achilles tendonitis let you adjust the grip as per your liking, ensuring the braces are not too tight.

Achilles Support With Targeted Healing

When you have Achilles tendonitis, you need to compress and support your Achilles so that it can start healing. Moreover, you need to correct your walking and other exercises to ensure there’s no added stress on your heel. With our Achilles support brace, you can stabilize your foot in the right manner and improve the recovery process.

Wearing our Achilles tendon ankle brace overnight helps reduce the morning stiffness and pain in the region. Also, these braces hold your foot in place while allowing your toes to point upward during sleep. This helps you maintain calf flexibility and reduce the pull of your Achilles tendon on the heel.

Fit and Function

The Vero Ankle™ braces are extremely effective in managing Achilles Tendonitis pain and swelling. The anchor straps of the braces provide the right amount of compression and support around the upper ankle, offering massive pain relief. Also, the BioMemory™ materials used in the braces replicate the body’s anatomy and offer a snug fit for ankles of all shapes and sizes. And since the braces have a low profile, you can wear shoes and cleats over them without any issue.

Apart from offering the right amount of compression, the braces from Vero Ankle™ also offer dynamic stability to your joint, ensuring the ligaments are not strained further. Also, the elastomers used in the braces help retain their original shape, offering quality support throughout the recovery process. If you need to perform a high-intensity exercise, the braces can store the energy and release it when tensioned, just like modern-day running shoes.

Achilles Tendonitis

The Achilles tendon is a fibrous cord in our body that connects muscles in the back of our claves to our heel bones. The overstretching of the Achilles tendon may cause irritation or inflammation of the tendon and may also lead to tearing of the tendon.

What is it?

Achilles tendonitis is a medical condition that occurs when the tendon connecting the back of your leg to your heels swells up and becomes painful near the bottom of your foot. Even though this condition is more common in athletes, non-athletes may also develop it if their Achilles tendons are overstretched on a regular basis.

Why do I have it?

If you have Achilles tendonitis, it may be because your Achilles tendon has been overstretched significantly in the recent past. It may have happened during any sport or athletic activity when you suddenly increase the intensity or duration of the exercise.

When does it hurt?

You may experience pain at the back of your leg or above the heel due to Achilles tendonitis after running or playing a sport (such as volleyball, basketball, soccer, etc.). You may experience severe pain due to this condition if you run for prolonged periods, climb stairs, or sprint.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do ankle braces help with Achilles Tendonitis?

According to medical experts, compression can help reduce the swelling of the area due to Achilles Tendonitis. Ankle braces help support one’s Achilles tendon and reduce the risk of recurrence of the condition. You can use Vero Ankle™ braces to give support to the Achilles tendon and provide much-needed compression to reduce inflammation.

How do I know if the brace is too tight?

While wearing an Achilles tendon brace, you need to make sure that the brace is comfortably tight. It should feel compressive through the foot and ankle. However, it should not be too tight that it cuts off circulation or causes other types of pain or discomfort. With the swelling in the foot or ankle, the tight fit can cause more harm than good.

How does an Achilles tendon injury occur?

There are several possible ways in which your Achilles tendon can get injured. The most common ways are:

  • Starting a new sport that requires fast movement of the feet or jumps
  • Performing high-intensity activities
  • Tight calf muscles when beginning an exercise
  • Bone spurs on your heel, which may rub against your tendon

If you feel pain above your heel, especially when you stand on your toes or stretch your ankle, it may be a sign of Achilles tendon injury.

Which exercises help against an Achilles tendon injury?

When you are suffering from an Achilles tendon injury, you can perform the following exercises to help against the injury:

  • Calf raises
  • Manual resistance exercises
  • Ankle exercises with a resistance band
  • Straight leg raises
  • Short arc quad sets

Apart from these exercises, you may also need physical therapy to recover from the injury.
