Re: haglunds deformity

I do not do surgery on a patient where there is an open growth plate. The growth plate in this area may not close until 14. An x-ray will confirm if the growth plate is open or not.

Silipos makes an Achilles tendon pad that I find useful in some people for this problem.

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Super easy strap adjustment for a custom fit with solid ankle support.
