    • Can I put moleskin inside? I am on the way to developing a rash and blisters. It is my second day. I am wearing a long sock.
    • Please contact Better Braces directly at 800-553-6019. We would like to recommend an alternate brace for you that will be more comfortable than the material that is irritating your skin. We do not recommend altering the braces. Two options that may work better for you that would provide similar support would be either the Rocketsoc Ankle Support Brace in the Drytex material, or the Aircast Airsport Ankle Brace. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-rocketsoc-ankle-support-1504 https://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airsport-ankle-brace

    • I was just prescribed a brace at the doctor that looks like this brace, but I wasn't able to get the model #. My insurance doesn't cover braces for sprains, and they wanted to charge me about $95. The brace I saw had both laces and straps, like this one. Is this the only brace like that or is there another model that is more likely to be the one they brought out to me? I have a grade 2-3 high ankle sprain, about 2 1/2 weeks old.
    • We also have the DonJoy Stabilizing Pro ankle brace that is laces and two straps

    • Is this brace waterproof, and will this brace work for competitive swimming??
    • The brace can be worn in the pool just make sure to rinse it off in clean water after usage and let it air dry

    • I have a Grade II inversion sprain, less than a week old, so still very sore and swollen. I have a walking boot which is great when I'm out, but I'm looking for something less bulky for indoors and to wear at night. My problem is I have really, really fat calves. I measure 13.5" at my ankle, so that puts me in a large for this brace. By the time I get 10" up my calf where the universal stirrup braces hit, my calf measures 20". The velcro on the strap won't even go all the way around. I'm wondering if this would work since it's a lower profile.
    • Jenn
      Yes you can wear that to bed, and it will provide some stability

    • I bought the ppdt..brace a few months ago..it doesn't fit right. I was wondering if someone could contact me to help me chose the correct brace for me.

    • Numerous ankle injuries have left me with a very weak right foot and ankle that constantly rolls or gets jammed under things causing me to fall. The resulting limp causes chronic sciatica, and the use of a cane is causing nerve pain in my shoulder. I'm only 29 and freaked out but the doctor said, "Here's a pill, get a brace, and call me after you've gotten physical therapy. Yay...

      I'm using the ProCare Stabilized Ankle Support, and it's fine, but I want to get something that offers the same or more support and is easier to put on and take off, because my wife often has to assist me when putting it on. Also, the ProCare brace is the only one I've found so far that is long enough to reach the middle of my fat size 14 foot, so a tiny brace won't cut it.

      Thanks in advance for your help, sincerely.

      The Don Joy Stabilizing Pro Ankle Brace is very similar to the Procare brace you have been using except that it is a more supportive brace than the Procare. It is sized exactly as the procare brace so you can get the same size. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-stabilizing-pro-ankle-brace Another option is the AirCast Air Sport Ankle Brace. https://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airsport-ankle-brace This brace is a very supportive brace as well with less straps than the previous brace. The XL should fit you.

    What Relief!

    Reviewed by:
    The dr put me in this for arthritis after I bad ankle break two years earlier. It's such a pain to put on but it's given me incredible relief!! Wear a sock under it. The Velcro is everywhere so you are bound to get a Velcro rash somewhere. Best of all, it fits in a shoe nicely. It's much more comfortable than my air cast. I wear it until I go to bed at night. I was in pain EVERY day and I had a stiff ankle EVERY morning. My ankle is both limber and pain free. I'm not taking Ibuprophen every day anymore. Low tech and inexpensive fix for a problem that was making me very depressed.

    This support does the job

    Reviewed by:
    I have a tendency to roll my ankles from missteping on uneven surfaces or from playing tennis. After using numerous ankle supports, I have found the Procare product to be the best support on the market. I now play tennis 5 days a week and have used this product for 15+ years without further injury.

    Had shredded the peroneal tendon on one foot and was having great difficulty skating for hockey. Called and got this brace, now can play hockey again. Product works great.
    Pros: Adjustable support. Low profile, so can get my hockey boot on and still tighten laces close to where they were without brace.
    Cons: When cutting the straps to fit, fabric is coming unraveled and sticking to the Velcro areas.

    Works but rubbing is painful

    I have been prescribed this to help with inflammation. It is summer and over 90 degrees. I am getting a rash on the skin under the laces and tongue and where the plastic on the side touches the ankle. I am wearing a long sock under the brace.

    They are much cheaper online than in your doctors office.
    I've tried another brand as well with the same design, but am going back to this one as it's made of a slightly lighter fabric, has 7 eyelets instead of 6 (more adjustability) and causes less rubbing on my foot.
    I have a fused ankle and work 40-60 hours a week. I find I get just enough support wearing this inside a very stiff 6" work boot; most days I don't limp and can even dance a little these days :)

    I wear it in 5 inch leather dress boots for Contra Dancing, and that seems to work pretty well, if I'm careful I can even dance when I probably shouldn't. It's slightly better if it's cool enough for thicker socks, but it's all better than limping!

    Effective Stabilization

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    Although, my doctor's office fitted me for a size small, I needed a size medium. Somewhere on the package you should instruct the fitter (or user) to measure the circumference of the ankle, which my doctor's office did not do. I found out about the measurement online. This led to an extra cost for me of another purchase size small and another purchase size medium. I have a twisted left leg with a total knee replacement and a left food which turns in. This ankle support effectively keeps my ankle straighter but I cannot wear it for a long time because the upper part of my twisted leg rebels against the leg being kept straight therefore causing me pain. It's all very complicated when you have several different things going on all at once.
    Pros: This stabilizer does keep my leg straight. But I advise all users to measure their ankles before purchasing. The cost for this item is good.
    Cons: I have to bend way over to lace up this support. There are many holes. And then have to attached a total of three velcro straps. With a degenerating spine and neck all this is extremely painful. I wish the support did not take so long to put on and that it did not require me to bend over. I don't use it at home. I always use it when I have to go out.

    Supports ankle to a degree

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    My left leg is twisted in 3 different areas (left foot pronates in, femur wants to twist out, leg area between ankle and knee also wants to twist in. Wearing the brace on the left ankle makes the area above it hurt at the end of the day. Also, my ankle still hurts wearing this brace. It takes a long time to put it on correctly, and my back hurts as I bend down to place it on my left foot/ankle. My left ankle and left leg were twisted because I was run over by a car, my leg got stuck under the car and I was dragged by my left leg under the car for three feet.
    Pros: It stabilizes my ankle somewhat.
    Cons: It is very difficult to bend down to place this on my ankle each morning. I have five lumbar discs which are all touching nerves in mg back.
