Most Helpful Customer Reviews
After spraining my ankle a few years ago, I have become more susceptible to sprains. My ankle also seems to be weaker than before and requires additional support during rotational sports like basketball and tennis. I purchased this product because it boasted stability and a wider range of motion than most ankle supports. When I received that package in the mail, it so happened that I had sprained my ankle the day before and was in dire need of a brace for support and compression. However, upon unboxing, I was saddened to see that the product was not all that I expected.
First: It was extremely difficult and painful to put on. In order to slip the foot through the opening and through to the end, I had to extend my feet (ouch!) and shimmy it through the very tight support (even with the straps completely loosened, the support still remained relatively stiff due to the unbudging elastic bands). Even after my recovery, the brace remained difficult to wear...
I have an ankle I started twisting 30+ years ago in high school basketball and more or less have been twisting it ever since. My ankle would generally hold up if I had taped it or if I was using one of those big, bulky, cumbersome supports like a McDavid brand brace. But those braces were stiff, stretched out my shoe and were never really comfortable. That said when I first received the Shock Doctor stabilizer, I was reluctant to even try it out. It seemed so thin and flimsy, I just couldn't see how it was going to work for me, but having used it very regularly for several months now playing tennis on a weekly basis, I can state unequivocally that it does work, and it works really well. If you suffer from weak ankles, and don't like the bigger, clunkier braces, I recommend you give the Shock Doctor a try.
Provide excellent support and yet they're extremely easty to put on. My son has "rolled" his ankle on two seperate occasions while playing football. I felt that he needed some stability to prevent him from further injuring his ankle. I read the reviews and decided to give these a try. I'm very pleased that I ordered this. Not only do they provide the support that the traditional lace ones do, they only take a few seconds to put these on. He played both football and basketball in these stabilizers. He said his ankles feel more "secure" and he can still move just fine. I'm glad I took the chance and ordered these!
