Re: Ankylosing Spondylitis in the feet, and braces

Have you seen a rheumatologist? The foot pain is generally related to the back problem. What medications are you on? I might even consider a pain management spesensoredt (possible spinal cord stimulator)

I have not tried the Ritchie type brace (there are several labs that make a variation) for your problem. Usually when I am not sure, I send a short email video to the lab and get the prosthetists opinion as to which brace might work.

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.
