Showing 1 - 9 of 9 products
Whether you run on a trail, on a paved path or treadmill, running is a high-impact activity that can take its toll on your joints.
According to research, 35-45 percent of runners will suffer from an injury each year, but there are ways to mitigate your risk. Protecting yourself from injuries like “runner’s knee”, muscle tears and ankle sprain should be an important factor in any runner’s training plan. In addition to a good stretch and warm-up routine, wearing a quality, medical-grade compression brace can give your body oxygenating circulation and support to avoid common twists, pulls and tears.

Physical Therapist Bryan Finger has spent over 23 years treating athletes at the high school and college level, many of them with painful shin splints. For years he was frustrated with the treatment options available which took the athletes out of training and never seemed to address the root cause of their pain. Until he discovered the Bauerfeind Sports Ankle Support.
