Active recovery can speed the resumption of regular running, and the use of a brace to strengthen an injured joint or muscle can begin that process.
BRD braces are designed to support and compress an area with technical fabric construction that wicks moisture as well. The weave is designed for support and enough range of motion to allow activity and a return to normal function as injuries heal. They also offer other styles of braces for knee and elbow, and a velcro close style for the ankle (we tested the pull on Ankle/Achilles Brace). Additional information, for fitting and ordering, is featured on their website: http://www.brdsport.com/
