The Compex brand is known for top of the line electronic muscle stimulators such as the Compex Sport Elite and the Compex Performance US.

Our feet are susceptible to pain because of all the stress we put on them on a daily basis. They carry our body’s weight and are heavily involved in everyday movement, and even more so for those who participate in sports.
Heel pain and plantar fasciitis are two common conditions that cause discomfort in the foot. Thankfully, there are ankle and foot braces that are designed to help alleviate the pain from these types of disorders. One of the best-selling ankle supports for this is the Aircast Airheel Ankle Brace. It offers pulsating compression along the heel and under the arch of the foot. This compression gently massages the achy areas, to bring pain relief for plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis and other forms of foot and heel pain.
It’s springtime, and that means it’s time to start gardening! However, along with warmer weather, it also means long hours of bending over, pulling weeds and planting flowers. These activities may cause both knee pain and back pain.
Wearing knee braces may help alleviate gardening knee pain by providing compression and support around the joint. They are ideal for gardeners who have osteoarthritis or a previous history of knee pain. Knee braces are also great for helping prevent the onset of knee pain and injuries.
Wearing a back brace can help prevent back injuries and back pain. Like knee braces, back braces offer compression and support, which helps to align the disks in the back properly. They also help individuals maintain proper posture when gardening, thus reducing the risk of back injury.
Gardening should be something we enjoy, not a chore. And even more so it should be something that we can enjoy without harming our joints. Learn more about knee braces and back braces today!
Holly B. is an active professional in her late twenties who spends her free time playing recreational flag football and league basketball. She shares her experience with us as she explores the world of sports.
Last year I tore my ACL while playing flag football. It’s been just over 7 months since my ACL reconstruction surgery, which has mostly gone pretty well. My leg feels fairly strong and I can even run, though I haven’t participated in any sports yet.
However, not all of my recovery was this smooth. Especially the previous few months… where my leg felt strong but in reality it wasn’t. I could see the difference between the quad muscle in my left leg, which was much thinner, and that of my right leg, which was strong and well-built. I think the worst of it were the moments of instability which would catch me off guard – when turning to pick up something that I dropped, stepping into an unexpected hole in the ground, walking down the stairs, and at other unusual times.
That’s why I’m glad they make braces for ACL tears and knee instability. Here are a few of the best ACL knee braces available:
