A night brace for Achilles tendinopathy keeps your foot flexed in the proper position. How your foot is flexed depends on the severity of the Achilles tendon problem; it may differ from the above illustration.

The brace usually is adjustable, so you and your health professional can adjust it to the proper angle. There are many types of braces available; this illustration shows one style.
