Re: Juvenile bunion surgery

Personally, I prefer to wait until after the growth plates in the foot are closed. There are others who would operate on any age, based on the severity of the symptoms.

Have you been back to the doctor who made the orthotics? Have you discuused surgery?

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.
