Re: Heel Pain

: For 2 weeks I have been feeling a sharp pain in my right heel, but it does not hurt to the touch -- no swelling, etc. It normally happens when I stretch my toes upward or bend over to touch my toes. It actually feels like a nerve causing a shooting pain. It does not happen every time I do this but often enough to cause me some concern. I'm afraid it is related to my achilles tendon. I'm over 50, and in good shape, but I have started a more intensive exercise program in the bpast month. Any help/suggestions? Thanks

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
