If I suffer from <a href="{{store direct_url='ankle-injuries/achilles-tendonitis'}}">achilles tendonitis</a>, is it better to immobilize the foot completely or will the aircast air heel really work? I also wear a size women's 5, will the small be too big?

Hello Jill,

You should consult your physician to verify the brace style that they'd like you to wear.

A size small Aircast Airheel will accommodate up to an 8.5 womens.

I have severe plantar fasciitis and have tried numerous arch supports with limited success. I weigh 450 pounds. Will your product stand up to my weight?
Question by: David on Dec 23, 2010, 7:52 PM
The Airheel is tested to 1000 lbs of pressure. Walking adds 2-3x your body weight to ground forces; so, the product does have a good chance of holding up for you.

I went to my podiatrist and it turns out I have Peroneal tendon tendonitis and a bit of plantar fasciitis. Will the Aircast Airheel help me to heal versus a full Aircast boot? About 6 years ago I had achillis tendonitis and plantar fasciitis and the full boot did the trick along with the night splint. I would like to avoid the full boot if possible. Is a neoprene sock helpful also?

The Airheel is great at providing comfort and massaging relief for the plantar fasciitis and the Achilles tendon areas. The Peroneals do run along the side of the Achilles tendon area so it will get some massaging relief as well. As far as the airheel healing the problem, it cannot heal it on its own, but it can provide some relief and massaging to the area while you are active during the day. I suggest you check with your podiatrist to see if the tendonitis is as severe as before, when he had you immobilize the area. If it is not as severe, then using the airheel will help in providing you relief and massage the area while it is healing. We also have a Dorsal night splint that you can combine with the airheel. When wear it at night, it will put your foot in a flexed position that will give the plantar fasciitis, Achilles and peroneals a gentle stretch, which is prove to help in relieving discomfort in these areas.

Does the width of the foot impact what size I should order? I am a womens 10 but I wear the widest shoe.
Question by: Karen on Mar 7, 2011, 5:43 AM
Karen, the foot section of the AirCast Air Heel is made out of neoprene so it is forgiving and stretches out, therefore it should strech to your foot width. Based on your shoe size you would fit into a size medium which is part number 09AM. Should you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to contact again.

Does the aircast airheel provide arch support when sitting or lying down?
Question by: katherine on Mar 28, 2011, 6:02 AM
Hi Katherine,
The Aircast Airheel does not provide any arch support. The Airheel is for people who have Plantar Fasciitis and/or Achilles Tendonitis. The Aircell under the foot does not support the arch.

I don't know what is wrong with my achilles tendon but I have pain there. Does the Aircast Airheel help other achilles tendon pain or just achilles tendonitis?
Question by: Jodi on Apr 6, 2011, 10:14 AM
Hey Jodi,
The Aircast Airheel has two aircells in it, one under the foot and one on the achilles. The air pulses back and forth creating a massaging affect which loosens up the tissue. If your Achilles pain comes from chronic tightness then yes, the airheel will help. If your achilles pain comes from something else(for instance over-pronation, ankle mal-alignment, Ligament laxity, etc) then no, the Airheel will not help.

I have a swollen achilles tendon in my right ankle. I get cramps in my right foot from alot of stop and go driving, will this brace help me. Thank you Tom M.
Question by: Tom M. on May 30, 2011, 1:44 PM
Yes the Aircast Airheel Ankle Brace would be recommended for someone like you with a swollen achilles tendon. The dual aircell technology will help to compression your achilles to press the swelling out of that area alleviating pressure and pain. Should you have any additional questions please contact us again.

I am a dancer, I have been told by doctors that there is nothing they can do for my pain. They said it was probalby tendonitis. It hurts most around the achilles tendon. I am at a dead end and need help. I would say my pain is moderate to severe, will this brace help me? also, is the brace flexible enought to dance in(i have to point my toes!)? lastly, my last aircast was pre-inflated, but seemed to loose the air over time...what should i do about this?
Thank you so much for your help!
Question by: Chelsea on Jul 9, 2011, 12:09 PM
The Aircast Airheel Ankle Brace is meant to be worn with a shoe, will you be dancing with a shoe on? If so, it would work. The aircells are inflated. There is a 6 month warranty. If the aircell deflates during that time, please contact us so we can swap it out for you.
