The Achilles tendon is the thickest and strongest tendon in the human body and it is the combined tendon of gastrocnemius and soleus muscles.
Nevertheless, the runners that suffered from midportion Achilles tendinopathy or insertional tendinopathy at least once in a lifetime are frequent.
But runners, do not despair, there is a sock that suits you and that could be enclosed in your prevention or rehabilitation program: FALKE Achilles!
What is so amazing?
Achilles envelop your foot perfectly thanks to the patented anatomical toe box, supporting and compressing it in the most injuries’ critical regions.
But what is amazing about these socks it’s the presence of silicone pyramids that run on the both sides of the Achilles tendon.
I have already told you about these pyramids in a previous FALKE article, but this time their action is more specific.
Bringing a soft compression, the silicone pyramids, with the foot movement, massage the tissue, resulting in a blood circulation increase and pain alleviation.
In addition, they get a proprioception stimulation which suddenly makes you feel better.
The result is a comfortable as a second skin sock, compressive and fresh, therapeutic and with a great taste of fashion.
If you are predisposed to Achilles tendon’s injuries, they could help you preventing them: after the training you can wear then at home or to go to work.
Your tendons will be grateful! Or they could be worn during your training, why not?
If the injury passed the finish line before you did, you could consider FALKE Achilles as a part of your rehabilitation program, because they speed up the healing process and reduce irritation of the Achilles tendon.
Runners, you have a new ally!
