Are you experiencing persistent foot or ankle pain? The discomfort could be due to a range of different reasons, such as sprained ankles, tendonitis, or even arthritis. Foot and ankle pain can transform everyday tasks into excruciating challenges. Walking, running, or merely standing can become a debilitating struggle, severely hampering your mobility and quality of life.

At NuovaHealth, we believe in empowering our customers to reclaim their mobility. We present to you an innovative solution – The Ankle Splint Foot Support Brace by FootReviver. But before delving into the unique features of this brace, let’s understand how such braces work and their incredible benefits.

The Science Behind Braces

Ankle braces operate on the principles of support, compression, and stability. Each of these elements plays a vital role in your journey towards pain-free steps. Support refers to the brace’s ability to assist your weakened or injured foot, reducing strain on the affected area. Compression, on the other hand, helps manage swelling, an often uncomfortable side-effect of many foot and ankle conditions. Stability is the final piece of the puzzle, preventing excessive movement that may exacerbate an existing injury or result in a new one. Wearing a brace can be critical in various situations, whether you’re an athlete looking to prevent future injuries, recovering from a recent sprain, or managing a chronic condition.

The Power to Prevent and Heal

Lets now go through some of the most common injuries and conditions that wearing an ankle brace can help treat and prevent:

For Ankle Sprains

An ankle sprain is a common injury that affects many people, especially if you’re an athlete or live an active lifestyle. The NHS has reported that ankle sprains account for approximately 5% of all A&E visits in the UK. It mainly affects the ligaments on the outside of your ankle, which can be stretched or torn when the foot is forced into an unnatural position.

This injury is particularly prevalent among people involved in sports such as football, basketball, and running. It’s also more common in people who have had a previous ankle injury or those with a higher body mass index (BMI). The most common symptoms of an ankle sprain include swelling, pain, bruising, and difficulty moving the ankle.

Ignoring an ankle sprain can lead to long-term ankle instability and an increased risk of future sprains. Therefore, treatment is crucial in ensuring a complete recovery. In a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine in 2021, researchers from the University of Nottingham found that using an ankle brace can significantly reduce the risk of recurrent sprains among athletes.

An ankle brace is designed to support your ankle and prevent it from moving in ways that could cause further injury. It also helps control swelling and reduces pain by providing compression. The brace allows the injured ligaments to heal while reducing the risk of additional sprains, thus aiding in faster recovery.

For Fractures

Fractures, or broken bones, can affect any bone in your body, including your ankles. Around 10% of all fractures treated in UK hospitals are ankle fractures. They’re typically caused by trauma, such as a fall, car accident, or sports injury. People with osteoporosis, a condition that weakens bones, are at higher risk of fractures.

A fracture is characterized by intense pain, swelling, bruising, and inability to put weight on the affected foot. Neglecting a fracture can lead to serious complications including bone deformity, chronic pain, or even a disability.

Treatment is essential to ensure proper healing and to prevent complications. According to a study conducted by the Imperial College London and published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Research in 2020, using an ankle brace alongside other treatment methods can greatly improve fracture healing and mobility.

Similar to its role in treating sprains, an ankle brace provides support and stability to the affected area, reducing pain and swelling. It also promotes healing by immobilizing the ankle, allowing the bone to heal correctly and preventing further injury. The use of an ankle brace can also improve balance and mobility during the recovery period, making it an important tool in the treatment and prevention of fractures.

For Plantar Fasciitis

What is it? Plantar fasciitis is one of the most frequent causes of heel pain. It’s that nagging discomfort that makes your first steps in the morning feel as if you’re stepping on needles. It is a disorder that arises when the fascia, a band of tissue connecting your heel bone to your toes, becomes inflamed at the bottom of your foot.

Statistics from the United Kingdom reveal that about one in ten people will develop plantar fasciitis at some point in their lives. This condition majorly affects the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot, connecting your heel bone to your toes.

Those who are overweight, regularly wear unsupportive footwear or have jobs that require a lot of walking or standing on hard surfaces are more susceptible to getting plantar fasciitis. Long-distance runners and those with high arches or flat feet are also at risk. The primary symptom is a sharp, stabbing pain in the bottom of your foot near the heel.

The impact of ignoring this condition can be severe, ranging from chronic heel pain that restricts your regular activities to foot, knee, hip, or back problems due to changes in the way you walk. Thus, it’s crucial to treat the underlying cause to prevent further complications.

Ankle braces come to the rescue here, providing support and reducing strain on your plantar fascia. They offer pain relief and help in the healing process. A study by the University of Exeter, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine in 2018, examined the effects of various interventions for treating plantar fasciitis. The study found that using an ankle brace can significantly reduce pain and improve function.

For Achilles Tendonitis

Achilles tendonitis is a condition that affects the Achilles tendon, the largest tendon in the body that connects your calf muscles to your heel bone. Across the UK, it’s estimated that about 150,000 people suffer from Achilles tendonitis each year.

This condition primarily affects those who are heavily involved in physical activities like running or basketball, which put excessive strain on the Achilles tendon. Middle-aged adults are also more at risk, mainly due to their declining tendon elasticity.

Achilles tendonitis manifests through tell-tale signs such as pain, swelling, and stiffness in the heel, especially in the morning or after prolonged periods of inactivity. If left untreated, it can lead to more severe complications like tendon tears or ruptures, which require surgical intervention.

Why is treatment so crucial, you ask? Well, prompt treatment can help alleviate pain, prevent further injury, and ensure that your mobility isn’t compromised in the long term.

One effective treatment method is by wearing an ankle brace. A notable study titled “The Effectiveness of Ankle Braces in Treating Achilles Tendonitis” published in 2018 by the University of Nottingham, UK, found that using an ankle brace can significantly reduce pain and improve mobility. The brace offers much-needed support to the tendon, reducing stress and strain on the area, and promoting faster healing.

For Flexor Hallucis Longus Injury

The Flexor Hallucis Longus, or FHL, is an essential tendon that extends from the muscle in the lower leg and passes along the inside of the ankle. It is responsible for the flexibility and strength of the big toe; therefore, an injury to this critical part can significantly impact mobility.

Straining or tearing of the FHL is more prevalent in athletes and dancers due to the repetitive and intense movements they make with their feet. However, it can also occur due to continuous wearing of ill-fitted footwear, or an accidental twist or fall. Initial symptoms include pain and swelling along the inside of the ankle and under the big toe. Ignoring these symptoms can lead to worsening pain, difficulty walking, possible deformity, and long-term mobility issues.

Prompt treatment is crucial to prevent further complications. A study conducted by the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Cambridge published in 2018 focused on the effectiveness of ankle braces in treating FHL injuries. The research, which involved a group of athletes, found a significant reduction in pain and improved mobility over a period of three months of consistent brace usage.

An ankle brace provides the necessary support to the affected tendon, reducing strain during movements. It also compresses the area, reducing inflammation and promoting quicker healing. The brace not only aids in recovery but also helps prevent future injuries by providing stability to the foot and ankle.

For Anterior Tibialis

Next on the list is Anterior Tibialis, a condition affecting the muscle in the front of your shin bone, or tibia. It is a relatively common condition in the UK, with about 50,000 people affected each year.

The Anterior Tibialis is often caused by overuse, usually among runners or athletes involved in high-impact sports. It affects the shin area, leading to shin splints, a condition characterized by pain along the shin bone.

Warning signs include sharp or dull pain in the shin area, which can intensify during physical activity. Long-term effects can range from chronic pain to stress fractures if the condition is ignored.

Treatment is vital to prevent further injury, alleviate pain, and ensure a healthy and active lifestyle. Ankle braces can be quite effective here too. A study conducted by the University of Edinburgh in 2020 titled “Ankle Braces for Preventing and Treating Shin Splints” found that wearing an ankle brace helps in providing additional support to the shin area, reducing pain and discomfort, and expediting recovery.

For Posterior Tibialis Tendon Dysfunction

One of the most common yet potentially debilitating conditions affecting the ankle is Posterior Tibialis Tendon Dysfunction. The condition involves a malfunctioning of the tendon that extends from your calf to the inside of your ankle.

According to the Limb Reconstruction Unit at King’s College Hospital London, Posterior Tibialis Tendon Dysfunction accounts for about 10% of all foot and ankle disorders in the UK. The ailment primarily affects adults over 40 years of age, with an increased risk for those who are overweight or have inflammatory arthritis.

Posterior Tibialis Tendon Dysfunction develops subtly, with occasional foot pain or swelling along the inside of your ankle and the inability to stand on tiptoe. If untreated, you could encounter long-term issues such as flatfoot deformity, which affects the alignment of your entire leg, potentially leading to knee and hip problems over time.

Treatment is crucial. Ignoring the condition may lead to severe flatfoot deformity, resulting in complete loss of function in the affected foot—an outcome which none of us would want.

Fortunately, studies like one published by the University of Manchester in 2018 have demonstrated the effectiveness of non-surgical treatments like wearing ankle braces. The study, carried out on a sample of 126 subjects suffering from Posterior Tibialis Tendon Dysfunction, showed a significant reduction in pain and an improvement in foot function. The brace acts by providing essential support to your feet, controlling foot movement, and reducing inflammation, thus alleviating pain and preventing further damage.

For Osteochondritis Dissecans

Another condition that could potentially benefit from an ankle brace is Osteochondritis Dissecans. This ailment involves the separation of a segment of bone and its overlying cartilage from the end of the bone due to lack of blood supply.

This condition, according to the British Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society, affects roughly 15 to 30 people per 100,000 in the UK each year. It is most common in people aged 10 to 20 years, particularly those who actively participate in high-impact sports.

Osteochondritis Dissecans primarily affects the joints, especially the ankle. It is caused by repeated trauma or stresses to the joint, such as those encountered in sports activities. Typical symptoms include pain, swelling, stiffness, and a limited range of motion in the affected joint.

Without treatment, Osteochondritis Dissecans can lead to the development of osteoarthritis in the affected joint at an unusually early age, causing severe pain and disability.

A study conducted by the University of Nottingham and published in the Journal of Athletic Training in 2016, discussed the role of braces in managing Osteochondritis Dissecans. The study suggested that braces provide support to the affected joint, reduce pain, improve stability, and prevent further joint damage. In particular, the use of an ankle brace can limit abnormal motion, provide stability to the joint, and potentially slow down the progression of this condition.

For Arthritis in the Foot and Ankle

Arthritis is a broad term that encompasses over 100 different conditions that cause inflammation of one or more joints – in this case, the joints of the foot and ankle.

Approximately 10 million people in the UK suffer from some form of arthritis, according to National Health Service (NHS) statistics. It typically affects the joints in the foot and ankle, causing pain, stiffness, and swelling.

The most common form of foot and ankle arthritis is osteoarthritis, often caused by wear and tear on the joints over time. Those over the age of 50, or individuals who’ve had a previous foot or ankle injury, are especially at risk. Symptoms to watch out for include joint pain, stiffness, swelling, and reduced range of motion.

If left untreated, arthritis can cause debilitating pain and mobility issues, severely impacting your quality of life. Early treatment is crucial to manage symptoms and prevent further joint damage.

Again, ankle braces can provide significant relief. They offer stability, reduce stress on the affected joint, and can help manage pain. A 2019 study from the University of Manchester, published in The Lancet, found that using supportive devices like ankle braces could significantly improve mobility and reduce pain in arthritis patients.

For Gout

Next on our list is Gout, a type of arthritis that is surprisingly prevalent in the UK. The NHS reports that Gout affects roughly 1 in 40 people. It’s primarily a disease of the joint, often affecting the big toe.

Gout is caused by high levels of uric acid in the blood, which can form sharp crystals in the joint, causing pain and inflammation. It’s particularly common in men over 30 and postmenopausal women. Triggers often include alcohol, certain types of seafood, and red meat.

The most common symptoms include severe pain, redness, and swelling in the joints, particularly at the base of the big toe. Without treatment, gout can lead to long-term joint damage and kidney problems. Therefore, treating gout is not just about managing the pain, it’s about preventing these serious complications.

A study from the University of Oxford, published in ‘Arthritis Research & Therapy’ in 2018, demonstrated the effectiveness of wearing an ankle brace in reducing pain and inflammation in patients with gout. The study found that the use of an ankle brace resulted in significant improvement in patients’ symptoms.

Wearing an ankle brace provides support and stability to the affected joint, reducing the strain and helping manage the pain. It also aids in immobilising the joint during a gout flare-up, reducing inflammation and facilitating healing. The use of an ankle brace is thus a small change that can make a big difference to those living with Gout.

For Foot Drop

Foot Drop, or Drop Foot as it’s otherwise known, primarily impacts the muscles that enable you to lift your front foot. It can occur due to damage to the peroneal nerve, muscular disorders, or conditions that affect the brain or spinal cord such as stroke or multiple sclerosis. Those with diabetes or neurological conditions are particularly susceptible. According to the National Health Service (NHS), Foot Drop affects approximately 1 in every 1,000 people in the UK, striking a bit of an uneasy chord.

The warning signs? A tell-tale symptom is a high-stepping walk known as a ‘steppage gait’, as well as frequent tripping. If not addressed, Foot Drop can lead to long-term mobility issues and muscle degeneration. However, it’s not all doom and gloom. With the right treatment, the prognosis can be quite positive.

A 2011 study published in the ‘Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery’ by the University of Nottingham demonstrated the effectiveness of ankle braces in managing Foot Drop. The researchers carried out a thorough review of the available literature and found evidence of improved stability and mobility in patients who wore ankle braces.

An ankle brace specifically designed for Foot Drop provides the necessary support to lift the front foot, aiding in walking and preventing tripping. By maintaining the foot in a normal position, it also helps prevent muscle tightening and deformity, bringing a ray of hope to those grappling with this condition.

As you can see, the importance of treatment, and the inclusion of an ankle brace in particular, cannot be overstated. Not only do they provide support and aid in recovery, but they also help prevent future incidents, securing your mobility and your peace of mind.
