Re: 2 sprained ankles plus 1 Jones Fracture

Yes and let me say I am sorry about your situation. In the past when this has happened to my patient, we have a discussion about what is important and what is necessary. There is no easy answer and every situation is a bit different. I had my patient in a wheelchair. The only weight bearing was to get from the wheelchair to the potty or bed. This was the source of many a complaint and I fully understood that. I felt that the situation demanded it and I was supportive and understanding.

You should discuss the pros and cons 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.
