Re: ankle pain--mri

I really would want to see the report and the films. I do not think that your insurance will allow the Ossatron treatment. Presently this is not an indication.

Having said that, I am by no means stating that this is your only choice: You might require a surgery to resect the bone spur and reattach the achilles tendon.

You should have a discussion of your options with your doctor.

Good luck.

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.
