Best Brace for Peroneal Tendonitis

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.

We have created a list of our three most recommended Peroneal Tendonitis braces that we recommend to our clients in the clinic.

Best Peroneal Tendonitis Braces

Elastic Peroneal Tendonitis Brace

  • This brace is a light, easy-to-use Peroneal Tendonitis brace that we recommend to patients with mild symptoms of ankle tendonitis.
  • It is comfortable, lightweight, and easy to apply.
  • Try turning your foot slightly outwards when applying the strapping to take the pressure off the Peroneal Tendons.

Bioskin TriLock Peroneal Tendonitis Brace 

  • This brace is a more robust ankle brace than the nylon strapping.
  • It is light with no laces and cushioning under the straps, so you can tighten the support without cutting into your ankle as you walk.
  • There is moderate subtalar joint stability with additional support for the medial arch, which is rare for ankle support.
  • The Bioskin Trilock is an allrounder for everyday use as a Peroneal Tendonitis brace, and we recommend it for mild to moderate Peroneal Tendonitis symptoms.

ASO Peroneal Tendonitis Brace

  • The ASO brace is a heavy-duty Peroneal Tendonitis Brace that we recommend to patients with severe pain.
  • It is restrictive regarding mobility as it limits ankle motion in all planes but is a very effective form of pain relief.
  • Its figure 8 strapping means that you can lock the ankle into eversion to limit the use of the Peroneal Tendons.

Will a brace help Peroneal Tendonitis?

A brace is a very effective measure for reducing Peroneal Tendonitis pain in the short term, but it is not a long-term solution. A Peroneal Tendonitis brace provides pain relief, and you should use it alongside strengthening exercises and insoles.
