Early arthritis? (pain in first few steps in morning)
After a few hours of sleep or when I get up in the morning, the first 4-5 steps on my right foot create ache in the core of my foot parallel with the front of my arch. After that it's fine. No injury history, I'm 32, and run 40 miles a week.
The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
