Re: Broken Navicular Bone

Hi Tammy. I was also told about 5-6 months ago that I have a stress fracture on my navicular bone. It happened during a fall that I had over 8 months ago. I also tore tendons and ligaments so I had surgery to fix that. My doctor was hoping that being in a cast for 4 weeks would fix the fracture and he said if not he would have to go in and put a screw in to hold it together. I'm now 8 weeks post op from my tenon repair and my foot is still bothering me. I also have a hard time walking heel to toe as you described...I'd be happy to talk to you and share information....just email me. I did find a few sites on the net that I can share with you.

Take care,

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.
