Re: Collapsed metatarsels

I had surgery last summer to remove heel spur and release fascia tendon. I was told to go easy on starting my walking program again. I still have foot pain but its on the top of foot and around ankle, some tingling. Foot surgeon now says I have extremely flatfoot and wants to do more surgery to realign arch and put pins in it. I walk now with limp as I'm still trying find a 'balance' point between walking for exercise and inactivity to not stress the foot. I wear custom-made orthotics, heel lifts and sneakers 12 hours a day and sleep with a night splint on foot. Is there anything else short of surgery that could be done for this injured foot? Or is surgery really the only thing to be done and I just live with whatever happens?

Gently supports the ankle by providing controlled compression throughout the joint, while relieving pressure over the malleoli.
