Best Braces For Achilles Tendon Rupture

HOW CAN I RELIEVE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT CAUSED FROM AN ACHILLES TENDON RUPTURE?

Achilles tendon rupture involves a total or partial tear of the thick tendon that runs along the back of your lower leg to your heel. This can occur when the tendon is overstretched, often from sports or recreational activities.

You may hear a loud ‘pop’, followed by an immediate sharp pain, a similar feeling to being kicked really hard along the back of the heel.

Common symptoms following an Achilles tendon rupture include pain, swelling, inability to bring the foot down or up when walking and difficulties with standing on the toes of the injured leg

Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports or braces with medical-grade compression are designed to reduce the symptoms of an Achilles tendon rupture, such as swelling, stiffness and pain.

You will experience a therapeutic combination of stabilisation and enhanced blood flow for healing during movement. Our special knit material is very gentle on the skin and allows for a comfortable brace to complement your recovery process.

    HOW DO I PREVENT ACHILLES TENDON RUPTURE?



    Make sure you frequently stretch the muscles of your lower leg to prevent overstretching of your Achilles tendon. Strengthening your calf and ankle muscles will also help to prevent a rupture.

     

    HOW TO TREAT AND MANAGE PAIN CAUSED BY AN ACHILLES TENDON RUPTURE?

     

    • Regularly apply ice packs in the first few days whilst keeping the affected leg elevated to help reduce swelling and pain.
    • Do plenty of balance and strengthening exercises for healing and prevent risks of re-injury. Your doctor can recommend a physical therapist to teach you what to do.
    • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and analgesic may be helpful.
    • Severe or persistent pain should be investigated by your doctor.

    Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent tendonitis pain.
