WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INVERSION AND EVERSION?


There are two types of movements that, if done to excess, can damage the ligaments in the ankle/foot:

 

-          INVERSION, the movement that stretches the ligaments on the lateral side of the foot, occurs in over 98% of the cases. This is the cause of most sprained ankles.

-          EVERSION, the movement that stretches the ligaments on the medial side of the foot, occurs very infrequently, and is usually associated with other complications affecting the foot/ankle.

WHAT IS THE SPRAIN-GUARD? HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Sprain-Guard is an orthopedic brace that provides full–time, professional-grade ankle rollover control to limit inversion or eversion. Usable prophylactically by both athletes and by individuals with ankle instabilities, the Sprain-Guard also provides full, normal, ankle joint range of motion, without restrictions, and without causing discomfort.


The Sprain-Guard protects the ankle from over-inversion or over-eversion by keeping the shoe from rolling over excessively in one direction, or the other. It provides no support during normal activities within the normal range of motion of the ankle/foot. It only begins to take effect when the protected ankle begins to roll over excessively. The Sprain-Guard is lightweight and cool to wear, and is put on, adjusted and removed in seconds.

One Sprain-Guard treats one foot. The Sprain-Guardis sold singly. Individuals that need support for both feet should order two Sprain-Guards.

The Sprain-Guard has been patented in the USA, Canada, the UK and Japan. The Sprain-Guard is made in the USA, and is currently shipped to the USA only.

I HAVE CHRONIC ANKLE INSTABILITY. WILL THE SPRAIN-GUARD HELP ME?


ABSOLUTELY!


The Sprain-Guard controls ankle rollovers for people suffering with lateral or medial ankle instability, no matter what the cause, and no matter what their previous experiences have been with ankle rollovers, and with other protective devices. The Sprain-Guard is also recommended to be used prophylactically for athletes facing higher-than-normal risk of rolling their ankles over.

 

The Sprain-Guard provides outstanding support while, at the same time, providing full ankle joint mobility, without causing any discomfort. Guaranteed!

DOES THE SPRAIN-GUARD HAVE TO BE ATTACHED TO MY SHOE?


YES!


The Sprain-Guard works with your shoe to help protect your ankle from ankle over-extensions.

While most ankle supports and braces attempt to stabilize the foot by putting something over the foot and/or into the shoe, the Sprain-Guard, instead, stabilizes the SHOE. It protects you against ankle rollover injury by keeping your shoe from rolling over too far. If your shoe does not roll over excessively, your foot cannot roll over excessively!

 

In order to ensure that the Sprain-Guard functions consistently and safely, the Sprain-Guard’s straps must be securely attached to the shoe. Attachments of Sprain-Guards to shoes are only made by X-Strap® Systems, or by our trained representatives, using specialized equipment, once you have sent us your shoe.

 

That’s the only way it works in order to provide support you can count on, no matter what activities you are involved in, and no matter what condition your ankle is in.

 

If you’re serious about protecting your ankles against rollovers, this is the best way to do it.

Send us your shoe, your payment, and the Sprain-Guard Order Form.

We’ll take care of the rest. You won’t be disappointed!

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET THE SHOE WITH THE SPRAIN-GUARD BACK?


We try to have the Sprain-Guard attached to your shoe within 3 days from the time we receive it.

It will then normally take 3-4 business days longer to get it back to you, via insured Priority Mail.

 

Express Mail return, which normally requires 1-2 business days to most USA locations, is available optionally at an additional charge. When choosing Express Mail, you have the option of indicating Signature Waiver so that the letter carrier will leave the package by the door if no one is at home to sign for it.
