AchilloTrain Ankle Support

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best ankle brace for treating pain in the Achilles tendon?

The Achilles tendon is located on the back of the lower leg, connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone. We recommend wearing the AchilloTrain to treat Achilles tendon problems such as:

  • Achillodynia is the condition where the Achilles tendon is painful due to the inflammation of the Achilles tendon (Achilles tendinitis/ tendinosis or paratendinitis).
  • Achilles bursa (Achilles tendon bursitis).
  • Chronic pain in the Achilles tendon that is caused due to rupturing of the Achilles tendon, microtears in the Achilles area or post-operation.

What is the difference between Achillotrain and the Achillotrain Pro?

For Achilles pain located towards the heel we recommend using either the AchilloTrain or the AchilloTrain Pro. For pain located further up the Achilles tendon we recommend using the AchilloTrain Pro.

The AchilloTrain has a tendon pad which runs alongside the Achilles tendon which provides a massaging effect for pain relief. It also includes an integrated heel cushion, providing a slight lift to the heel, which can aid with pain relief.

The AchilloTrain Pro, on the other hand, has a butterfly-shaped viscoelastic pad with nodules that run across the Achilles tendon extending up to the calf muscles. The nodules provide a frictional massage which accelerate the healing process by improving blood circulation as well as providing pain relief.

What is a good ankle brace for Haglunds deformity?

Haglund’s deformity is a condition where the bone at the back of the heel enlarges. When the bony enlargement rubs against the shoe surface on a daily basis, it irritates the Achilles tendon. This causes inflammation and pain of the bursa (a fluid-filled sac which cushions the ankle bone and tendon) known as ankle bursitis.

We recommend wearing the AchilloTrain to relieve the pain. If your ankle pain spreads through to the calf muscles, we recommend using the AchilloTrain Pro for extended support up to the calf muscle.

Do you provide an extra heel cushion for the unaffected leg?

Yes, we provide a separate heel cushion for the unaffected leg to offset the length difference caused by the integrated viscoelastic heel wedge in the AchilloTrain.

Solid support and can wear for long periods

This is a medical grade support device and feels very well made and fits comfortably. There are no rough edges or chaffing that cheaper brands often suffer from. I wear it for sport and if I know I am going to be on my feet for extended periods of time.
