The four products below have been recommended to, and used by hundreds of our previous patients - all with great results. They are the best of their kind, that we have found through experience. They can all be purchased through Amazon, so we've included links to save you time at the local shopping centre!

1. Balance Cushion (With Free Pump)

Balance Cushion for ankle sprain rehab


Balance cushions are fantastic, cheap pieces of equipment to work on balance and joint proprioception. They provide you with an unstable surface to challenge the ligaments within your joints to fire in order to keep you balanced. This strengthens them and helps improve the overall control and strength of your joint. They are the number one piece of equipment to purchase following a joint sprain but have a number of other uses too.

Purchase from Amazon.
