mom's ankles

my mother has post polio..she is overweight, uses a walker to get around..lately her left ankle has started to bend inward to the point it looks like it may snap...what do you recommend she do in the way of therapy or shoes? i am so afraid her weight will cause her to break the ankle and she will fall and never walk again...thanks cheryl

Lined with soft fabric on both sides, this ~2mm thick SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is an excellent cushion to help relieve the burning sensation and discomfort of the five metatarsal heads of the foot (the ball-of-foot) by protecting the ball of foot from repeated friction and abrasion with the shoes.
