Re: Cracked Heel Bone

Depending on the extent of the fracture the treatment might be a cast ot cast boot, non-weight bearing with crutches or even surgery. If a non-union develops then a bone stimulator might be indicated down the line.

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.
