: I am having sever back pain between my shoulders that is almost non-stop burning sensation. I also have had a problem for over 20 yrs with the lower back due to collapsed disc. I recently had 2 sets of steroid shots (a total of 18 shots each session) that helped considerably with the lower back, for about 2 months but then came back. The pain is so bad that I wake up several times during the nite. I have osteoarthritis too. At the present time I am taking Propoxyphene (Darvocet) that only temp. relieves the pain, never totaly getting rid of it. The pain is so much in the forefront of my mind that at times it is hard for me to concentrate and by the end of the day I feel totally drained. HELP

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Valuable trainer and coach time is saved when taping is eliminated. In an independent sudy of athletes Swede-O ankle braces were chosen as most comfortable.
