I recently purchased a right ankle support to go with another one a doctor had prescribed about five years ago when I had a fall and a severe ankle sprain. My right ankle is now becoming unstable like my left ankle is, with limited range of motion. When I wear both ankle supports while walking in sand or working with my rescue horse by lunging him on uneven ground surfaces, I have improved ability to walk and have less pain in my feet, ankles, and legs after doing this type of activity for an extended period of time. I have a gait difficulty and neuropathy present in all my extremities and feel less at risk for falls when I stabilize both ankles wearing the ankle support braces in very supportive shoes. It is great to be able to walk better and I love working with my horse very much. These ankle supports were worth every penny I paid for both of them at different times in my life. They are a very good investment for those with weakened ankles who do strengthening exercises as recommended by a medical professional in conjunction with wearing supportive shoes and the ankle supports for strenuous activity as overseen by their doctor or physical therapist.
