Who Can Make Gains with the Aircast Leg Brace?
Stress fractures are one of the most common injuries in sports, affecting those who run, jump or perform repetitive movements in their daily lives. Fractures tend to be the result of overused muscles that fracture under stress.
As a result, the best way of healing this kind of injury tends to be resting and stabilising the limb, which makes the Aircast Leg Support with Aircells an excellent method for getting back on your feet following an injury to the lower leg. The brace effectively supports the leg by holding it in a neutral position, allowing you to get back to the sporting activities you've so sorely missed during your recovery!
