Can anyone recommend a protective wrap or sleeve for protecting the achilles tendon and the heel of the foot from pain? This would be for a nine-year old boy, Level 5 gymnast. Thanks.

The X-Brace works well for Severs type pain.

My daughter uses cheetah cups but I have heard good things about the E Brace as well. I also got heel cups to put in her street shoes and that made a BIG difference for her.
