Debilitating Arch Pain and the X Brace

Debilitating Arch Pain and the X Brace

October 13, 2013

Before The X Brace I had decided that running was out of the question…

I have always been an active individual from playing football and baseball in high school to becoming a competitive power lifter and bodybuilder in college and after, however, as I aged my focus changed to more cardiovascular activities.

I began cycling 4 years ago at the age of 36 and have enjoyed every day on the road.  Like all competitive personalities, I look for ways to improve my performance.  Thus, in an effort to help maximize my fitness I began running while traveling or when I did not have the time to ride.

After several weeks I developed sharp pain in the arch of my feet and in my lower calf.  In talking with a friend he recommended trying The X Brace.  As you might have guessed, having played and worked through injury before, I was skeptical a small elastic brace was going to “Fix” my issues, much less help……I was wrong, after only one day the constant throbbing of my arch began to dissipate.

After 2 weeks of following the stretching, icing, and use of the brace recommendations, I no longer needed the brace and I was pain free, and was able to run in a half marathon with no pain or discomfort
