calcaneonavicular bar coalition

My very athletic 11 yr. old son was recently diagnosed with a calcaneonavicular bar coalition in both feet. WE are considering the surgery but are a little nervous about the thought of him going under. He has very limited range of motion in his foot and are amazed at how he has adapted to his limitations. After reading and discussing future problems he may experience by not having the surgery, we are quite concerned. What are your views about this?

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.
