Re: Jones Fracture

The problem with this area is that it sticks out as it is the anchor for a very strong tendon. Simply putting a soft pad over the base of the 5th metatarsal will not stop the motion at the area. A rigid orthotic with a lateral phalange might be an idea, but it might not fitr in any shoe. You might also consider wearing a sturdy lace up solid soled shoe, provided your doctor has given you the OK.

This slip-on device is a soft and stretchable Nylon/Lycra® fabric molded with a proprietary gel pad to protect the entire Achilles tendon of the foot by absorbing pressure and friction resulted from rubbing with the surface of the shoe.
