Dr ED or DR z Strap fo FHL tenosynovitis????

DR ED OR Z,

Is their a strap you know of that will take the stress off the fhl and fdl tendon? I know they have them for tennis elbow and achilles tendinitis , but what about the tarsal tunnel area where the fhl and fdl are lcoacated?

I tried an ankle brace that limited inversion and eversion , but no help.

See 'brace' number 325 which is the double strapped Stromgren --- worth a try!
