A sprained ankle can be treated as follows: Elevating the leg, applying ice packs, compression and movement. Elevate the foot for 10 to 20 minutes four to six times a day and apply an ice pack. This relieves the pain and eases swelling. Then put the brace on straight away and keep your foot moving. If walking is too painful a few exercises will help bridge the gap until you can weightbear on the foot. Flex your foot up as far as it will go and hold this position for a few seconds. Then point your toes as far as they will go and again hold this position for a few seconds. Repeat these exercises 10 to 20 times. The exercises are easier if you elevate your foot and cool the joint with ice before doing the exercises. To achieve the best possible treatment results always wear the brace with trainers.
Adjust the heel width. Position the heel rest with the Velcro strap so that the side pieces hug the ankle closely.
Open all the Velcro straps and fasteners.
Hold the injured joint at 90°. Put the brace on so that the heel is in the centre of the heel rest and the side pieces hug the ankle closely.
Now fasten the lower Velcro fastener. Make sure that the side pieces remain parallel.
Close the upper Velcro fastener.
Pull one or both straps tight alternately until the brace fits firmly.
Make sure it does not press too tightly on the ankle joint.
Velcro fasteners should be closed for washing. Soap residues, lotions and ointments can cause skin irritation and material wear.
Wash the product by hand, preferably using medi clean washing agent.
