See how our braces are helping people get back on their feet.
I suffered from recurring Plantar’s Fasciitis on my right leg/foot for several years. I tried everything under the sun and read everything on the internet. I stretched, iced, had physical therapy, bought countless pairs of shoes and inserts. Finally, in the fall of 2016 …
I was at my local podiatrist for an unrelated problem. He actually discovered my PF without me saying anything, when examining my calf muscles. He explained to me that researchers had discovered that tight calf muscles needed stretching for much longer than people typically do when trying to treat it themselves, and he suggested the Equinus Brace. After the three month (one hour a day…easy-peasy!) treatment, increasing the angle of the brace each month, the PF is gone and I have not had any problems or pain at all! I am back to hiking on a regular basis and am so grateful! Thanks for a great product!
We’re using them a lot for our Achilles tendinitis patients we’ll often have them in a soft cast and cam walker until pain-free, then we’ll transition them into an ankle brace supplemented by daily active stretching and use of the Equinus Brace. Our patients are…
giving us positive feedback and we’re seeing noticeable increases in their flexibility and range of motion after using the brace, so we are very pleased.
I just wanted to say thank you for this brace! It has me walking without pain for the first time in two weeks and it has the added bonus of relieving my night time foot cramps!
My doctor, Christenson, proscribed this equinus brace…
after 6months of the awful painful heel spur and locked leg muscles! It really has worked! Thank you
I just want to tell you how excited I am about your brace. One of my patients, who I have been treating for plantar fasciitis for months, is now for the first time showing signs of improvement. We tried injections, physical therapy, night braces, etc, etc. Nothing worked. Your brace is helping him.
I am a 45 year old woman who has been through her fair share of surgeries but I wanted to share with you how the Equinus Brace helped me to recover mobility in not just one ankle, but both. Back in 2003, I underwent a tarsal tunnel release on my left ankle…
Shortly after, I underwent the same surgery on the right. Healing was slow, but went well at that time. However; roughly a year or so later, I began having the same issues in my left ankleand went through the surgery once again. This time, the healing did not go well as I took an infection that soon became severe. It took 14 months for the incision to close and months of therapy to regain very little movement in my ankle. I soon just realized that this is how I would be from there out. Years passed and I became very careful how I stepped down, often holding on to someone or something to keep balance beings that ankle wanted to stay stiff and not move as it needed to adjust to uneven ground. I gave up all hope of it being normal again until I met Dr. Edward Cohen! Dr. Cohen started treating me for foot problems and pain. He recommended the Equinus Brace and fitted it to me in his office. I use the brace daily and I am here to tell you, I HAVE MOBILITY again! My ankle is nearly brand new! I can move it and step on uneven ground again without fear of falling, without the pain, without the assistance. I am actually teared up telling you this as it is unbelievable to me that something so simple could change everything. I thank God for Dr. Cohen and his amazing foresight in recommending the Equinus brace. I, for one, will always be in debt for his giving me back what I thought was gone forever. I highly recommend the Equinus Brace and to this day, tell all my friends and family how it truly gave me back my mobility! Thank you so much, Dr. Cohen and Equinus Brace!.
The Equinus Brace has really helped me get rid of the tight and achy muscles that contributed to my stress fracture. The brace helped relieve my tired muscles and stretch the entire leg, from toes to the thigh providing complete relief. After a few weeks, I noticed a change in my ballet performance.
After 4 yrs of on and off misery, the brace was prescribed by one of many podiatrists. It gave me range of emotion and healed my achilles tendon.
I’ve recently started using it on the other left to heal plantar fasciitis. I’m pain free and increasing range of motion after a couple of weeks of use (in the 20* stage).
