The best Peroneal Tendonitis brace should have compression and straps while being strong enough to hold the subtalar joint in neutral or slight eversion to reduce the tension on the peroneal tendons.
If the brace holds the ankle in slight eversion, it can provide pain relief to Peroneal Tendonitis, reducing inflammation while allowing the individual to be mobile. For severe cases of Peroneal Tendonitis, a brace with a lace-up or metal sidebars may be helpful as this reduces the total motion at the ankle joint. The downside to this type of brace is it limits the range of motion; it can be challenging to walk in or fit into tight-fitting footwear.
A Peroneal Tendonitis brace is a short-term solution to reduce pain levels and facilitate healing. Still, using it alongside a rehabilitation protocol guided by a Physical Therapist would be best. Other forms of treatment include insoles and Peroneal tendonitis shoes.
