This effect furthers the decline in swellings and bruises. Irritation and pain are relieved. Simultaneously, the muscular control and the inherent stabilization of the ankle joint improve. Supports cause the greatest effect during physical exercise. IMPORTANT:Always wear both supports simultaneously in your shoes to ensure the same leg length. Once the acute symptoms subside, the supports should be used alternately (e.g., every 2 hours) as you see fit and not worn continously to acclimate the tendon to normal loads. Please take care that trained staff instruct you when putting on the support for the 1st time.
