Re: Persistant Foot/Ankle Pain

: Does the cast brace help? Have you seen a neurologist as well?

: If casting helps, then possibly an AFO (ankle foot orthosis) such as a Ritchie brace might be helpful long term. Ask you doctor.

The cast allows better support, however, if I put any weight on the outside of my foot the sting occurs and the numbness follows. The numbness subsides when I elevate my foot. The neurologist said my EMG showed delayed response but it was within acceptable range. Thank you for your immediate response.
