Achilles Tendon Strap

The strap is helping me recover from achilles tendonitis. I haven't felt like I'm able to resume my running activities yet, but I feel like I'm getting closer with its use. The added support is a big help.

I recommend it.

Provides great support to my achilles tendon, reduces the pain, and is comfortable to wear; however,the Elastic strap that goes under your heel is too short, needs to be a little be longer, Iam 5' 8", 140 pounds and it barely fit me.

Worked like a charm!

I was having trouble recovering from an Achilles injury associated with running in shoes that I probably should have laced tighter (performance neutral minimalist Saucony Vitara 3). I went back to my old brand/style (ASICS DS Trainer) and got a new pair of 18's for more stability and a little more heel lift. I used the Achilles support from Pro-Tec with the DS Trainer 18's, and ran (slowly) for the first time in a week (spent icing the injured tendon a couple of times a day). The run went well, and I had no pain during or after the run. The injury is now nearly completely healed. I will continue to use the support for a few runs to make sure. If I do go back to using the Saucony Vitara 3's, I will make sure to use the extra loop at the top of the laces and tighten them well to add some stability! The point is that the Pro-Tec support system really does work. It's cheap and simple and does not mess up the sizing of the shoe. It can be warn all the time or just for running/exercise. You can't ignore an Achilles injury. They don't go away and only get worse if untreated.

No dramatic results but it works

4

I have achilles tendonitis and it hurts even after light running. Putting on the strap reduces the pain, in rest and in walking. It does not eliminate the pain, but the strap works as claimed, as a support that shortens the tendon. It is simple to use. The price is a little steep for such simple device, but it is a good design.

Eased Pain in my Archilles but...

4

Although I found a good amount of relief from using this product, I feel I would've used it more often and therefore experienced more relief, if it was sized a bit better. This product only comes in a reg size (S-L) and then a XL size. Being that my feet (and ankles) are closer to a child's size, being able to buy a smaller more precise brace would have helped me out more. As soon as I wrapped it around my ankle it was still moveable and the strap for under my heel (that I believe would help to keep the stabilizer on the Achilles' tendon) pretty much hung under my heel and didn't assist at all because it was too long for my foot but I could not tighten it under my heel because the Velcro only went so far on the strap. I would recommend this to others but I would warn them about the sizing issue before they purchased it.

This item is great. I bought recently and noticed immediate relief of tendonitis discomfort. I have been increasing my distance running and have never before had achilles tendonitis. I've been stretching and taking anti-inflammatories but none of it has helped so far. As soon as I put this on, my achilles felt better. I've been wearing it since I bought it (with work shoes as well as during my runs) and I'm noticing my tendonitis going away. Its a great relief, as I was concerned I was going to have to stop running. Great product!

5

I have had insertional Achilles tendonitis on and off for 8 years. Picked up the Pro-Tec support (was grasping at straws) and felt relief nearly immediately. I wear it while running with no trouble. I've been wearing it on all runs for two weeks (together with new shoes and insoles) and I am guardedly optimistic that this will finally resolve a long-term problem. I'll post another rating after I use it for an extended period. In the meantime - I'm buying aout 5 of these to be sure I've got a supply.

Been using these for YEARS!

4

I have been using these for years. I was an avid runner for many years. I have VERY high arches. One year while training for a marathon, I changed brands of shoes,and after about 3 weeks of 50+ miles a week, my achilles flaired, to the point I could not run 100yards.....Saw ortho, who advised me that "maybe you should just stop running for good; after all, you are 43". This was not acceptable to me, so I tried these out of desparation. 10 years later, I am STILL running, albeit not as fast, but am training for another 1/2 in March. They work for me! I won't run without them!

Definitely helped my achy Achilles!

5

While training for my first marathon, my Achilles began aching during my long runs. After adding the use of this strap to my long runs, it kept the pain at bay! I wore one on both feet for my marathon, and I had no pain in my Achilles whatsoever - not even after 26.2 miles! Only one flaw - I got a tiny blister on one of my feet at the "bend" (opposite side of my foot to the Achilles) but it wasn't major and is totally worth it, if it allowed me to finish my race.

Pro-Tec Athletics Achilles Tendon Injury Recovery Strap

5

I've been dealing with Achilles pain for about 6 weeks, which has impacted my running. Although I was somewhat skeptical, I was willing to give this a try since it seemed to have some good reviews. I first used it as daily use, since I walk around quite a bit at my workplace. I didn't experience any discomfort so I decided to test it during a run. It did not cause any discomfort and it helped keep the pain away. No annoying pain after finishing my run either.

I have been on the bench for more than 6 months. My achilles issues has been getting better and I decided to get back on the road. I read the reviews for this product and thought I would give it a chance. I have only gone running twice thus far, but I must say this wrap seems to have done the trick. I am running pain free! I would recommend giving this wrap a try.

Have had achilles issues for a long time. running dropped from 20 miles per week to 6 miles per week. Tried the Achilles tendon wrap this morning and the pain is noticeably reduced, I will keep using it. Caution, I am 6ft/190 lbs and the wrap just barely fit my ankle. If you are much bigger, or just have big ankles, this may not fit. Is there a larger size?

I have bought one for each Achilles!!

I run 30-35 miles a week and last year started having issues with left Achilles but kept running and got to the point that I physically could not run because of the pain (I weigh 225). I got this strap and after a two week break started back again and I have been pain free every since. The Achilles was tender from the pressure at first but now I where one on both Achilles and have had NO pain.

Great product! After I strained my Achilles, I took a couple of months off, but saw a podiatrist in the interim. He highly recommended this product, as it moves the tendon a little closer to where it can capture some blood flow, which speeds in the recovery. I always wear it.

While the strap may be a little irritating while running(due to compression), after I run I find that it has eliminated the tendon pain I used to have. Make sure you use over appropriate socks to alleviate irritation when using. Definitely a buy!

Being a senior runner (70), thought my days of running were over due to persistent bouts of achilles tendonitis over the last 5 years. The more mileage, the greater the pain. Laid off running for a year resulting in no pain, but upon resuming running the pain returned as mileage was increased. This product has completely eliminated this pain. Keeping my toes crossed :-)
