Boots Sport Firm Ankle Support – Small
- For strains, sprains and pulled muscles
- Rapidly reduces pain, swelling and tenderness
- Speeds up healing and reduces risk of further injury
Boots Pharmaceuticals Firm Ankle Support helps to stabilise the joint without restricting movement. It provides firm compression over the ankle which reduces pain, swelling and tenderness. The neoprene fabric warms the area of injury, which increases blood flow and oxygen to the damaged tissues and leads to faster injury recovery. The warming effect creates greater flexibility in muscles, tendons and ligaments which reduces the risk of further injury.
Strains, sprains and pulled muscles.
