Alongside any rehabilitation programme, there is always additional tools and products that will help improve how effective the programme is. Rehabilitation is a long game, it takes time for exercises to work their magic and make physiological adaptations. Make the most of the little wins, that add up to make really noticeable results.
We recommend the following two products for anyone suffering from an achilles tendon injury, of any level. We would only suggest products we have personally tried and have witness have great results. As we don't currently stock any physical products, we've found them for you on Amazon.
Are you in pain? Are you looking for a gel to reduce your pain and swelling fast and effectively? Have you used brands before that haven’t touched your pain? Are you looking for the strongest ibuprofen gel on the market? Then this is what you need.
Do you already have a pain relief gel that isn’t working? Check the concentration %. A lot of the main brands are just 1-2% in concentration. This pain relief gel boasts a huge 10% ibuprofen content, which means it is much stronger than others on the shelves, and the strongest you can buy.
Handily capable of being used as either a heat pack or an ice pack, this set of 3 Koolpak hot/cold packs can help reduce pain of an injury at any staged. They can be used in the early stages of an injury as an ice pack to reduce inflammation and bruising, or they can be used towards later stages as a hot pack to reduce muscular tension and improve flexibility.
This set of 3 packs means you don’t have to wait for one to freeze before using it again, you can use one while they others are in the freezer! The fact their are 3 in each order also helps anyone looking to use contrast therapy where they alternate between hot and cold packs to improve circulation and speed up recovery.
