I'm out of the boot, now what?
I've worked with several people recently that were told to wear a walking boot for a variety of issues: chronic ankle sprains, acute ankle sprains, and a foot fracture. They all had one thing in common when they were finally allowed out of that walking boot they were screaming YAY! The boot was hot, uncomfortable and is so heavy....basically it was miserable having to use it to walk However, then they quickly realized they had no direction on what to do next. They each had so many unanswered questions like: Why should I slowly start wearing my normal shoes versus just getting out of the boot all together? Why is my ankle swelling? Why is my ankle so stiff? Dr. Molly discusses this and more in the video below....
When you first get out of walking boot your ankle is going to be stiff
If you are just getting out of a walking boot and you want specialized guidance to get you from walking boot to running working out, for vacationing without fear of re-injuring yourself and you want to know about cost and availability.
