Custom Ankle Braces & Foot Braces Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists in Illinois
Everyone takes thousands of steps every day. If you exercise regularly or play a sport the twisting, turning and pounding can sometimes cause ankle sprains and other injuries. Many times an injured person may purchase an over-the-counter ankle brace to help remedy the problem. There are many different types of braces offering varying degrees of support – which can be confusing.
Only a podiatrist experienced in complex ankle injuries can accurately diagnose the true nature of ankle issues. Our ankle and foot braces are matched to the severity of your problem, not a “one-size-fits-all” brace you can get at a drugstore. When one of the experts at Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists evaluates your foot and listens to your symptoms, we will work with you to find the best ankle support. The ankle and foot braces that we supply are made of superior materials than what you can buy in a store.
Can’t I Just Treat An Ankle Injury Myself?
Ankle injuries are likely the most under-treated problem that many people face and many times an injured person will attempt their own treatment and find their own ankle and foot braces – making the problem worse. A misdiagnosed, under-treated ankle sprain or ankle injury can eventually become a loose ankle or other long-term problem. We can help.
A Board-Certified podiatrist from Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists will diagnose what the injury actually is: an ankle sprain, or something more complicated like a partial tear or torn ligament. We determine exactly what you need and what the treatment protocol should be. Throughout an evaluation, we interact and involve our patients with their treatment options, speeding up the healing process.
