Re: Inevitable Ankle Surgery

Without seeing your ankle and the x-rays I can can not state specifics. If you are going to have arthroscopic surgery, more than likely they will put you in a removable cast boot. Physical therapy is also lokely afterward. If you have to have more radical (open) surgery, then it is likely a cast will be used. The best answers should come from your surgeon though. Good luck.

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
