The Pro-Tec Achilles Tendon Support uses a unique method to compress the Achilles tendon, easing chronic tendon pain. The neoprene strap, applied above the ankle, includes a firm but comfortable pressure pad applying focused compression to the Achilles tendon. The elastic strap wraps beneath the heel, providing subtle heel lift. The Pro-Tec Achilles Tendon Support is made of UBL neoprene, felt, Cool Max Mesh, elastic and Velcro. Latex-free. Universal right/left. 1/pkg.
Indications - The Pro-Tec Achilles Tendon Support is used in the treatment of Achilles tendonitis, rehabilitation of Achilles tendon tears, calcaneal bursitis, heel pain, plantar fasciitis, heel spur syndrome and Baxter's nerve entrapement.
Foot Care Tip - Heel position significantly affects Achilles tendonitis. Low-heeled shoes and going barefoot increase the mechanical load applied by calf muscles to the Achilles tendon. Be sure your treatment plan for Achilles tendonitis includes avoiding low-heeled shoes and going barefoot. A heel lift worn with the Pro-Tec Achilles Tendon Support can cut your healing time in half. Also be sure to ice the Achilles tendon before and after exercise.
