This ankle support does the job as stated. I use it to help control ankle swelling and the pain from arthritis in my feet and it also helps with foot cramping I get at night, in bed.

I had some ankle swelling with a dull ache, so I tried the charcoal ankle support & in a few days, the swelling had decreased & the pain was gone. I've used it a few times since with the same success. Its a tight fit, but you do get used to it, & aren't aware of it after a time.

I find this support to be very comfortable and easy to wear. Becomes a little tight sometimes but I can live with that. Thinking about a second one.

I purchased the product for light support following an ankle sprain. The size seems right, but the support's uncomfortable to wear--the thicker material around the heel opening binds, chafes, and creates painful pressure in the instep. Disappointing.

I broke my ankle in March, literally in pieces. When I tried the charcoal ankle brace on for the first time, it was bliss! No more pain just a feeling of gentle warmth and support. This is my second order since wore the first one out and I am buying two braces. I found it useful to have a spare when it's time to wash one. I plan to recommend them to my orthopedic surgeon-they are that good!

After having my knee replaced I developed pain in my ankle secondary to the gait changes resulting from the proper realignment of my knee. I wore the ankle support for 1 week all the time when walking. Pain is resolved. I plan a 2-week trip to UK in a few weeks will be taking it along just in case. Effective, fits into shoes without binding. Follow sizing guide for best fit. Medium was good and I am not tiny.

My first pair were perfect--the second pair I ordered the same size and they are a tiny bit tight. I have been wearing one old and one newer keeping the newer one on my left leg--it is a tiny bit thinner than my right. My foot turns inward and this helps.

the heel binding is thick under the heel and the arch of the foot, cutting uncomfortably into the foot.

It does support, but it does not seem to do any more than any other elastic ankle support.

Michael prefers wearing this support rather than the ace support because it's a comfortable support.

I have tender skin particularly in the arch area and use orthodics. I was worried about the binding around the heel cut out. I have to be careful that it isn't curled up but it just took some getting used to in order to avoid a possible blister. It is helping amazingly with the swelling, and resulting discomfort. This isn't the worst season for my ankle, but I have great hopes. So far, much better than others I have tried.

I bought two of the them for a friend who broke one ankle and severely bruised the other foot from a 20 foot fall. He said he felt something healing from them as well as supportive.

The ankle support has been an amazing relief to my arthritis in addition to general support for my ankle. It is comfortable and I am able to wear it throughout the night.

I purchased the ankle support for my high school son who plays football and needs extra support due to an ankle sprain last year. This wrap helps keep him in the game. Washes nicely, too.

I bought this brace anticipating its need because of a big trip my husband and I were taking to Maine. We planned on hiking in the mountains of Acadia National Park so I bought the ankle brace and the knee brace, just in case. I have some arthritis in my knees and a weak right ankle.

Turns out that I didn't need either during the trip. However, ironically, the morning of the day I returned to work, I tripped, taking a bad fall on the cement walk outside of my house. I'd turned my ankle and bashed my knee. After applying ice for the first 24 hours, I tried both the ankle and the knee brace and I was shocked to find that within a day, the swelling looked like it had subsided considerably. Within 2 days, I was able to walk almost normally on the ankle. I really was surprised, but then again, I've been so satisfied with everything I've bought through the Isabella catalog it just stands to reason that it really works!

We receive so many submissions for ''pain relief'' items that don't work that I've become jaded at any such claim. When one of my favorite natural health practitioners told me about the success he was having with these supports made from fabric containing bamboo charcoal, I was skeptical, but I told him I'd try them. Would you believe they had a 100% success rate among my friends and colleagues with mild to severe aches and pains? One of our buyers who experiences a lot of pain walking at gift shows was completely pain-free for five consecutive days while wearing the ankle support. Read more...

My kickboxing instructor, who is scheduled for knee surgery, has spent hundreds of dollars on knee braces, wraps, acupuncture, meds, etc., and he's so happy with the knee supports that he asked if he could sell them in his studio! They've improved his circulation so much that he's back in the ring coaching and performing like he's in his 30s. He says they're the best knee supports he has ever used (and he's been in martial arts for 50 years).

Whether you have arthritis, joint pain, or a sports injury, these supports might be the solution. They're made with bamboo charcoal which emits far-infrared rays as well as negative ions. After wearing them for just a few minutes, you will feel heat generated from the bamboo charcoal interacting with your own body heat. When I asked for the science behind this, I got 79 pages of documented clinical research. The bottom line for me is that good blood circulation promotes good health, and far-infrared energy has been shown to enhance circulation, provide anti-inflammatory effects, and boost the immune system. I'm very excited to pass these supports on to all who need relief from pain!

Your reaction to these supports will vary depending on your specific ailment and your state of being. The more hydrated you are, the quicker you will feel the heat it generates. You can wear your support until your inflammation, aches, and pain are gone or have subsided significantly and as long as you need or want to. Just drink a lot of water to keep hydrated. Just like having an energetic healing session, the energy will stay with you for a while afterwards.

Your bamboo support is washable in cold water, gentle cycle, and low heat dry. Put it in direct sunlight to recharge once every 2-3 months and to reverse any odor, energy, etc., it may have absorbed.

The approximate circumference measurement is for the widest point of this support. The support will stretch up to an additional 2" wider than the circumference. You'll want the support to fit snugly, so get one that's up to 2" smaller than your measured circumference.
