Ankle Armor is a long, narrow compression wrap that's meant to be wrapped around one foot and the corresponding ankle to help relieve pressure, pain, and swelling in the ankle, foot, or lower leg. This wrap is purported to be helpful for people with conditions such as arthritis, plantar fasciitis, and tendonitis, along with people who are temporarily suffering from sprains or injuries. It's stated that how tightly you wrap it can be customized to suit your unique needs.
The cost of Ankle Armor is $19.99 and the shipping is FREE!
You'll notice that at one end of this black compression wrap, there's an open loop. Before you can proceed with wrapping the entire compression device around one foot and ankle, you'll have to wrap this loop around one heel in a circular manner.
Once the aforementioned loop has been wrapped around one of your heels, you can proceed to wrap the entire compression device around the corresponding ankle and foot. Where you allow it to cross your skin (or a pair of socks), and how many times you wrap it around a particular area should depend on where you're experiencing the most discomfort. Due to the length of the wrap, you'll need to wrap it at least a few times around an average-sized foot and ankle, although how tightly or loosely you wrap it is your choice.
When you're done making your wrap encircle your foot and ankle in a way that'll enable it to put pressure on the most uncomfortable parts, you'll notice there's a Velcro tab at the end. Use this to secure the wrap in place so it won't begin to unroll or fall off as you move around. For a tighter fit, pull on the tab a bit before you secure it, or leave it as is for a looser fit.
If you get tired of wearing your wrap, or you want to take it off while you sleep, pull on the Velcro fastener to unfasten it and start unrolling the wrap. Finally, when that's done, you'll have to remove its loop from the heel you added it to in the first place. When you're not using it, you can either put it in your washing machine for cleaning or store it in a safe place until the next time you need it.
Each Ankle Armor wrap is black, so it won't show most forms of dirt easily if you don't get around to washing yours after every use. Plus, if you wear yours with a pair of black socks, its appearance will be very discreet.
Ankle Armor is washable, so you'll be able to run yours through your machine, although you should avoid tumble-drying it and hang it to dry instead. Remember to check the fabric care instructions so you can determine the best type of cycle to use when you need to wash it. If you don't have access to a washing machine, you'll be able to hand-wash it with soap and water.
The material used to make each of these compression wraps is soft and breathable, so even if you wrap yours around your foot and ankle rather tightly, you'll likely still feel comfortable. This material is also flexible, so you'll be able to bend it as you wrap it around your skin or sock, which will only enhance your comfort level.
Since this compression wrap has an adjustable nature, one size has been designed to fit all adults. That means you'll be able to share your wrap with others if you'd like to, though you should always wash it before passing it along to someone else. Similarly, if your feet are slightly different sizes, the wrap should fit the right foot just as effectively as it does the left. A child with a foot that's close to an adult-sized one should also be able to wear this compression wrap comfortably.
These wraps come in sets of two or four, which means that if you're the only one using them in your household and you choose the former option, you'll always have a spare on hand. However, if more than one person in your household may benefit from using these wraps, you may want to obtain a complete set of four.
Ankle Armor is quite a slim compression wrap, so it'll fit under virtually any pair of shoes or boots, including some pairs of sandals. If you plan on wearing shoes that aren't open-toed, and you don't want others to see the wrap, pulling your pant leg down over your shoes should hide it from sight. When necessary, if you have two wraps, you can even wear one on each foot at the same time.
While this compression device has been designed mainly to relieve pain, inflammation, or pressure in the lower leg, ankle, and foot, it'll also help out the knees and hips. Discomfort in the leg, ankle, and foot can often radiate upward into those areas, but your wrap will stop discomfort in the lower areas so it can't make its way to the higher ones. As a result, you may be able to relax or enjoy your favorite physical activities without experiencing any pain or irritation in your lower body.
Wearing a pair of tight compression socks might prevent you from getting a good night's sleep, but on the other hand, an Ankle Armor wrap is suitable to sleep in. You can remove yours if you'd like, but if you think you'll reap more benefits by wearing it throughout the night, just leave it in place when you go to bed. Following that, you may find that your feet and ankles feel much better than they normally do when you wake up in the morning.
Without a device like this compression wrap, people who arrive home from a physical job may have to rest their feet for up to hours before moving on to household chores, exercise, or other activities. If you have one or two of these wraps, though, it's unlikely that you'll need to sit around for that long. Instead, you'll be able to add wraps to one or both of your feet, and after you've done so, they should feel at least a bit more energized in minutes.
If you have a problem with one or both of your feet or ankles, it may be a natural reaction to seek the services of a podiatrist. However, this may not be necessary if you're able to self-treat your problem at home by wearing an Ankle Armor wrap for at least a couple of hours a day.
