Vive Health Double Feature!

Vive HealthI am so excited to be partnering again with Vive Health! You might remember my post about their Shoulder Brace, you can read that here.
I have two awesome Vive Health products to share with you their ankle support brace and they’re back support brace!

How about a little backstory about me 🙂  When I was a teenager my sister and I were in a really horrific car accident, we were parked and rear ended the drive was driving over 60mph (it was bad) Since then I have had severe low back pain. I’ve spent many hours in physical therapy for my back and my spine. I have learned a bunch tips and tricks to help temporarily elevate the pain. Now, fast forward to the spinal tap that I had during my twins C-section birth, yeah that added extra low back pain.
I anxiously awaited my new back brace it hopes that it would give me so much needed relief. When it arrived I couldn’t have been happier with the quality!

The Vive Health Back Brace has a double Velcro closure making it two times stronger than other back braces. The double closure also enables you to have regular pressure or extra pressure depending on how tight you stretch it! The velcro seems much more well-made and so much stronger. I can do all my regular activities such as doing laundry, bending over, working out and stretching and the brace stays in place no slipping down or loosening. When you are trying to relieve significant pain you want to know that your support will stay in place. It even has a removable lumbar support so depending on the extent of my pain I can either have it there and adjust it to your liking or remove it. I think that is a really a cool option!
I think it goes without saying that I am obviously a huge supporter of this back brace! I highly recommend this Back Brace to anyone you suffers from back pain or simply needs some extra support.

I was so excited to get this, I know that probably seems really silly but since the age of 10 I have suffered from severe {and I mean severe} Achilles tendinous. It has no rhyme or reason, I have no idea when it will strike, it doesn’t matter how little or how active I am, it can strike at any moment and sometimes it’s livable but honestly guys sometimes it is so painful that I cry.  I have spent a lot of time just like with my back in physical therapy, I have tried all kinds of different tips and tricks, I’ve gone to an orthopedic surgeon, I’ve gone to for you name it, I’ve done it and I have gotten very little relief from my tendinitis pain.

So when The opportunity arose for me to try out the Vive Health Ankle Support I jumped at it. The day the package arrived I was having a horrific bout of tendinitis pain, so I ripped open the box and took the ankle support out. I was really impressed with the quality of it, I was thinking it was going to be more of a pull on sleeve but as you can see that is not the case. This is like the Goliath of ankle support! It has a double velcro closure in the back so it’s really easy to get on, it also has double Velcro straps so you can create the pressure that you need for your specific ankle pain. Due to the pain that I was suffering from I put it on and I put it on pretty tight. Sometimes when you put on a ankle support or brace your toes and feet can feel tingly or your foot feels cold or even falls asleep, that was not the case with the Vive Health Ankle Support.

This brace has a really cool feature, on the back there is a injury support panel so it helps prevent re-injury which I think is a great option because it fights against re-injury and it can help you heal so much quicker.
Another cool things is that it is made from breathable neoprene which I think is genius, I cannot tell you how many times I have used ankle supports {or supports in general} that are just not breathable at all! Because if Neoprene I haven’t gotten sweat at all, in fact I like wearing a sock while wearing the support! I have even slept in it with no issues at all. This particular ankle support is slightly bulky so you may or may not be able to wear shoes with it {I have worn my Nikes with it and it’s OK} but I actually prefer for in home use.

Vive Health Rotator Cuff Brace

Rotator Cuff Brace by Vive - Shoulder Support Brace for Rotator Cuff Injury Prevention and Recovery - One Size Fits Most, Can Be Worn on Either Shoulder - Vive Guarantee
We all deal with daily aches and pains…especially as we get older…ugh! Unfortunately there are so many including myself, who deal with daily aches and sometimes serious pain due to an injury. For me I injured my shoulder, neck and back a while ago, then aggravated it to the point of intense physical therapy when I slipped in the shower {gotta love conditioner on the floor right} I was able to catch myself from falling, but it did so with my already injured left arm 😦 This happened a while ago and honestly my shoulder still isn’t the same. So a few weeks ago when Vive Health reached out to me about reviewing their Rotator Cuff Brace I was STUNNED…how did they know I need that? Ha…what a crazy and absolutely welcomed surprised!
With my specific injury some of the easiest things cause so much pain. Simply carrying in groceries or playing baseball or basketball with my husband and kids can exhaust my shoulder and cause some pretty significant pain. I’ve tried a lot of different techniques to help elevate some of my pain but most don’t work and the things that do work, only do for a limited time…then they just don’t…blah!
Honestly I have to say, this brace seriously works wonders for my shoulder! While wearing the brace I’m able to participate in all of my favorite activities including kettlebell workouts!! If you have a shoulder injury or have had one, then you know that in most cases shoulder injury or pain and kettlebells do not mix well. Many a time have I aggravated my poor shoulder because I cannot just sit by and do nothing…I have to do something! The Rotator Cuff Brace make it feel as if I don’t even have injury at all!
The Rotator Cuff Brace is very comfortable even long periods of time, which I love because there is nothing worse than having an injury and having to wear some type of brace or protection and it being horribly uncomfortable {I had pretty bad tendentious in my wrist and hand years ago and man, that brace was HORRIBLE!} The Rotator Cuff Brace is nothing like that! It made of out Neoprene which in my opinion tends to be pretty darn comfortable!
Whenever I try out any new product I try to really nit pick it to make sure that I not missing any thing. With that being said there is really only downfall I could find. You will more than likely sweat a little more than usual especially if the Rotator Cuff Brace is being worn in hot weather. Personally this is not a big deal for me but I know that some people are very sensitive about sweat so I wanted to be sure to share that!

About the Rotator Cuff Brace

  • BREATHABLE NEOPRENE: Ideal for active users, this support is designed to keep you cool and comfortable in all circumstances.
  • UNIVERSAL SIZE: Can be worn on the right or left shoulder. A fastening strap allows you to customize the fit of your brace to your exact requirements.
  • EXTRA-STRENGTH ADJUSTABLE STRAP: We use the highest quality latching material on the market to prevent discomfort and constant readjusting.
  • COMPRESSION THERAPY: This support provides gentle compression to the shoulder, helping to increase blood flow and reduce recovery time.
  • VIVE GUARANTEE: We stand by our products with excellent customer service and a 60-day warranty.

I hope this is found to be useful {honestly I wish I knew about this baby months ago}. If you have a shoulder injury I’m so sorry, I truly feel your pain, but I want to really encourage you to give the Rotator Cuff Brace a try, with a $19.99 price tag it won’t brake the bank 🙂 About a year, year and half ago my 70+ year old mom really injured her rotator cuff doing some work that she should have never been doing but alas it happened and she spent many months in intense twice a week physically therapy…she wants a Rotator Cuff Brace now!!

**Please note due to that nature of this brace and how it is worn I am not comfortable sharing personal photos.

I want to extend a HUGE Thank You to Dan at Vive Health for sending the Rotator Cuff Brace!
