Re: broken metatarsels

I broke the 4th and 5th metatarsals in August of 2005. It has taken the whole year to completely heal although the bones were healed completely in six weeks per the x-rays. The tissue seemed to take forever to heal, thus causing pain. My foot seemed to always be swollen a little under the break area. I am finally able to wear my old shoes again! Take it slow during the healing process, and try to do any foot exercises that the doctor tells you to. You will be able to be yourself again, it just takes time. Good luck and God bless!

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
